Visiting and Photographing Zion National Park
I’ll never forget my first visit to Zion National Park. As I approached the Park, I was in awe of the red rock mountains that were surrounding me. Pictures I had seen had not prepared me for the experience. I couldn’t wait to get out and explore. Allow me to share some of what I have learned about this incredible National Park.
As you approach Springdale, Utah, you get your first glimpse of The Watchman, an incredible, sharply pointed, red rock mountain. For me, this mountain became synonymous with Zion National Park. It didn’t seem to matter from where or when I photographed it, I liked it.
Probably the most iconic view in the Park is looking south from the Canyon Junction Bridge over the Virgin River to The Watchman. It used to be possible to photograph this scene from the bridge, but due to safety precautions, this is no longer allowed. I’m glad I was able to do it when I could. There are still photo options from down by the river that are very good.
The road that goes north into Zion Canyon is something special. The view and trails along this road are why the Park receives millions of visitors every year. Due to the crowds, you are required to use a shuttle bus system for all but a couple of months in the winter.
The first stop on the road is the Court of the Patriarchs. There is a great view of these formations from over the river and a small cascade. The shuttle doesn’t leave early enough to get you there for sunrise, so you might have to consider taking a photograph later in the day.
At the Emerald Pools, there is a cascade of water that flows over the rock face as you walk up the trail. I photographed it in the fall, with brilliant orange and red colors in the foliage below the cascade.
Further up Zion Canyon is the trail to Angel’s Landing. This is an extremely difficult hike, and sometimes dangerous, that I have not done. The photographs I have seen from the Landing are impressive. I would strongly recommend anyone considering this hike to learn as much about it as possible in advance and go well prepared.
At the north end of the Canyon is the Temple of Sinawava, where you can take the River Walk into The Narrows. The views in the canyon, especially in the Fall, are spectacular. I have only done it once, but I could do it over and over and come away with different images every time. I highly recommend it.
As the main road heads out to the east of the Park, there is a trail to the Zion Canyon Overlook that begins just east of the tunnel. Spring and Fall are good times here when the sun is rising and setting pretty much due east and west, lighting up the canyon.
West of Springdale, near the town of Virgin is a dirt road that takes you to Kolob Canyon. There are a variety of overlooks along with access to an iconic view of The Subway via a long and difficult trail along and crossing the Left Fork of North Creek. Like Angel’s Landing, I recommend doing considerable research before undertaking this hike. Permits may also be required.
Zion National Park is well worth a visit, and I especially recommend it in the Fall. I hope you have a chance to go there.
Fun Facts About Zion National Park
Zion National Park is one of 63 National Parks in the United States and was designated as such in 1919. It covers 229 square miles in southern Utah and receives over 4 million visitors each year. The highlight of the Park is the 15 mile long Zion Canyon, which is surrounded by reddish and tan colored Navajo Sandstone.
A prominent feature in the Park is the Virgin River that runs the entire length of the valley. The river is dotted with Cottonwood trees that turn a brilliant shade of Yellow in the fall. There are great hikes everywhere including to Angels Landing and the always impressive canyon of The Narrows. In addition to the mountains in Zion National Park, see our gallery of Fine Art Mountain Photography. See photographs from other parks like Bryce, Yellowstone and Yosemite.
