Zion National Park // Kolob Canyons

Kolob Canyons is the northern section of Zion National Park. The park offers similar red sandstone mountains and cliffs, but in a much more intimate setting.

The hike we chose in Kolob was a 14 mile all day hike to Kolob arch (below). The trail took us through 1000 feet of elevation change and took about 8 hours to complete.

The scenic drive around the park offers some great views, especially during the sunset hours.

Zion National Park is a place that's been a part of my traveling history. I first visited the park back in high school.

I recently traveled to Zion for a weekend to show my friend the great canyon and also retrace my own paths around the park.

The first hike we did was called the Hidden Canyon Trail. The hike took us up 850 feet for 2.5 miles. The destination was a small box canyon nestled in the side of the main canyon high up.
