Zion, My Children, Or At Least The National Park

Road Trip! Click any pic for enlargement.

This is part of The Gorge (don't know if it's got an official name) that cuts across the NW corner of Arizona.
            .

Zion, at last. Land of Tall Trees, Mountains, Short Trees, and ... Buffaloes?
             .

The roadway scenery is never dull in Southern Utah.
              .

I was pulling over every few minutes to capture yet another breathtaking view.
             .

We take smooth roads and bridges and tunnels for granted. Can you imagine what it took to turn this raw wilderness into an afternoon's drive?
             .

Lots of thoughtfully provided pull-offs.
             .

A couple of old geezers at one of the scenic overlooks. That's me and my Dad.
            .

This is an air and light vent for a tunnel that goes through a mountain.
          .

The tunnel is not very big. Motorhomes have to wait for a lull in traffic, then the tunnel is closed on both sides for the motorhome to go through.
            .
One of the entitled indigenous species. There really are buffaloes in Zion.
