    I love Zion! We drove from California to visit my brother when he was lvniig in Utah, years ago, and it was a trip we weren’t really looking forward to. It turned out to be one of our best vacations ever. We visited Moab, Bryce Canyon and at the end Zion. Our kids were too young to hike through the river like that, so I’m definitely going back at some point in my life. It’s wondrous! Your photos made me remember just how much so.
