On Saturday, after our tour of Antelope Canyon, we drove from Page, Arizona, to Kanab, Utah where we ate lunch at Houston’s Trail’s End Restaurant. After lunch, we went to Zion National Park. I’m telling you, if you are easily overwhelmed by spectacular views, don’t come to this area! We found ourselves wondering how “they” decided one place should be a national park and another place was just ordinary. I don’t know how “they” decide this, but I wouldn’t want that job. If I were the one having to make that decision, I think half of northern Arizona and southern Utah would be one huge, continuous national park.
The photo above is of the scenery just opposite the entrance station to Zion National Park. I could look at that every day, yes I could.

It was such a fabulous day here, the sky really was that blue.
As usual, these photos don’t show how really grand this landscape is.
We drove all the way through Zion, starting on the east side, then out the west gate into the town of Springdale. At the far end of Sprindale is Springdale Fruit Company. They have the best smoothies, made with apple juice from their apple orchard. MMMMMM. We also got some of that delicious Old Navuoo jam they sell there. Then back in the car, to drive back through Zion, west to east.
This is in Springdale, headed back into Zion National Park.
This place is so amazing!
We stopped to watch and photograph a herd of Mountain Rams. These two just posed and posed for us. I got a video of them, too.
This is the Utah countryside on the way back to Kanab, where we spent the night that night. We went to dinner at Nedra’s, Too, a great Mexican restaurant in Kanab. We stayed at the Best Western in Kanab, on the top floor I might add. We got some good sleep that night, but the wi-fi didn’t work. Oh, well, I guess you can’t have everything.
