Zion National Park

Earlier this year, my friends Rosemary and Rukku and I decided to plan a long weekend somewhere in the U.S. to spend some time together and see/experience something new!  After deliberating for a bit, we all landed on Utah. None of us had been there, and there are FIVE national parks in the state!  Since we were only going to be together for a four day weekend, we narrowed our parks down to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park, which are about a two hour drive from one another.  Not only did I have an AMAZING weekend with my friends, but we saw some absolutely incredible scenery and some awesome wildlife.  We spent two days in Zion and one in Bryce Canyon, so there will be several blog posts about this epic trip!  Here are some pics from our first day in Zion…
