Zion National Park. Utah, USA. Located along the edge of the Colorado Plateau in the American Southwest, Zion National Park encompasses 230 square miles (593 km).

Zion National Park. Utah, USA. These towering sandstone mountains have eroded over time to provide ample mineral-rich decomposing rock and sand that provide a root-hold for a myriad of shrubs and trees including cottonwood, maple, pine and juniper, among others.   This scene is along scenic Byway 9 at the eastern edge of the Park.
