Of the 229 square miles that make up Zion National Park, most visitors spend their time in the long narrow canyon that makes this park so popular.  The spectacular reds and oranges of the canyon walls, the green of plants and trees that seem to sprout out of cracks and crevices, and the blues of sky and water create an unforgettable and much beloved scene. Whether you’re hiking the famous Narrows, Angels Landing, or Emerald Pools trails or simply picnicking in a quiet spot along the river, the grandeur of the canyon surrounds you in a palette of warmth and beauty.
