Zion National Park seemed to have its own character. It all surrounded the majestic Virgin River, with its most famous hike, an 8-hour long trek called the Narrows, taking place almost entirely in the river. Although we did not take the Narrows, there were plenty of other hikes and trails.
The trails in Zion range from easy (such as Riverside Walk, a simple and mostly flat trail alongside the river) to strenuous (such as Angel's Landing, a trail with a drop of around 1500 feet on either side).
The park is full of wildlife, especially squirrels (!) It also has many different plants. However, as the park is more well-known, it is far more crowded - but worth seeing.
