Exploring Zion National Park

Zion is one of those places that you know you will love, even before you visit it. One glance at a photo on Instagram or Pinterest and it is clear why people from around the world come to walk her paths and gaze at the red rock formations. With that popularity, comes a necessity to be strategic, or you will certainly be lost in the hefty dose of crowds...rather than the wilderness of the park. With some creative planning though, you can have a killer time and skate right around the crowds...

Backpacking in Zion

This was our first time backpacking in a National Park. In our attempt to venture off of the well-beaten path and enjoy the true, unspoiled beauty of the park, we ventured into Zion's backcountry wilderness. Our location was the PERFECT family spot. One peep at these pics and you can see...Zion National Park shines in the fall! We visited the first week of October...and I do believe that the foliage was at it's peak for fall beauty...

We had a fabulous time exploring the lava fields and adventuring through the wild caves...
