Zion National Park, Utah's first national park, is distinguished by Zion Canyon's massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink and red. The canyon leads to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river then flows to the Emerald Pools, which are most noted for their waterfalls and hanging garden. Zion National Park offers you the unique ability to walk the same trails as pioneers and ancient native people. Karen Strum's “Fields of Mount Zion” captures the beauty of the steep red cliffs and the fields surrounding them.
