Zion National Park was about 160 miles from Page, AZ. It's claim to fame is the towering sand stone peaks rising thousands of feet above the canyon floor. We arrived on Saturday. So did thousands of others. There were no parking spaces anywhere. The Bultman's car and the Quist's car got separated by about a mile. We finally caught up to each other at the visitors center. In order to travel along the canyon, we needed to board a shuttle bus. This is a great system. It stops at various trail heads and runs about every 15 minutes.
We took the Kayenta Trail for two miles. It is considered a moderate trail and is paved for many sections of it. We saw this waterfall along the way.
