Zion-Mount Carmel Highway

One of the benefits of a relatively warm winter this year is that this road isn’t covered with snow & ice. Sadly, I didn’t have my motorcycle on this trip. Then again, I wouldn’t have this photo if I had ridden that day, so it’s all good.


During my first stay at Zion National Park, I asked some of the locals in Springdale about the weather and the best time of year to visit. They told me that Zion only has two kinds of weather:


1: Too damn hot!

2: Too damn cold!


That aside, most folks agreed that September was an ideal time to visit. It turns out that February wasn’t so bad when it’s a warm winter, too.
