Zion

Lazy start it’s only a few hours to Zion, and with regret leaving the mountains behind took awhile to get started. 

Took the scenic drive via the tunnels on AZ 9 into Zion.  We’re about 4” too tall and had to pay the $15 escort fee for the tunnel to be closed to allow single lane of traffic down the center line.  We’ll need the same escort to exit the park.

If entering Zion from the west the town of Springdale has grown up right up to the entrance.  Easy walk to the movies, delis, arts and crafts – a bit like Sedona or a more upscale Idyllwild.  And that is where the Watchman Campground is – inside the park but walking distance to town!   Altho the campsite has some great views.

The scooter is a great way to reach the viewpoints we passed on the way in.

Have a full day here tomorrow to explore.
