During our visit to Zion National Park, we were parked outside of the East entrance. So we saw a lot of the East side of the park. I think it is even prettier than the valley.
The roads throughout the park are all this red color.
I just couldn't stop taking pictures out the car window.
Even this Mommy Bighorn Sheep was taken out the window.
There's her baby!
I actually stopped and got out to take a shot of this cute little tree.
We went on several hikes on this side of the park. This is trailhead for the East Rim trail that starts right by the east park entrance. If you keep going for 6 miles you connect to where we started the downhill hike I wrote about in the last post.
I walked about 1 1/2 miles of it and the rocks were gorgeous.
What a great view!
Another short hike on the east side is the Canyon Overlook trail, where you see the valley and the tall cliffs on the other side.
We went up several washes looking for Two Pines Arch. I had gotten directions off the internet here, but neither the directions or the coordinates worked for me. But I had fun looking!
