Grand Canyon National Park, As one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon shows an impressive display of erosion and mother earth's natural beauty. Stretching for 277 miles, the Grand Canyon ranges in elevation from 2,400 feet to over 7,000 feet above sea level.
Hiking, Wildflowers & Fall Colors

Zion National Park offers many trails ranging from short "leg-stretcher" walks to strenuous adventures. If you wish to go into the backcountry it is best to check in at the visitor center in Zion National Park for detailed information on the trails of your choice. For guided hiking or trail information you may see some information by clicking here.

A variety of life zones and habitats makes Zion an excellent location for wildflower walks in spring and brilliant leaf color in autumn. In the spring the cactus are blooming and Indian Paintbrush is visible throughout much of the summer season.

Photography
Zion National Park offers the photographer many opportunities to explore color, texture, and light. From the valley floor to the highest plateau the scenes change at every turn. Foliage on trails will make an excellent frame for your scenes. Sunrise and sunset present significant changes to lighting on the faces of canyon walls. There is plenty of wildlife (Turkeys, Deer, Lizards, Insects, Squirrels and other birds) to view and the river through the park is spectacular. When it rains you’ll find an even more spectacular experience with waterfalls coming down over every rock face. Zion Canyon Field Institute

Customer Testimonial:
My wife and I recently toured the Zion and Bryce Canyon area. We stayed at the Pioneer Lodge while in the area. I must take this opportunity to compliment you on the Lodge and Restaurant.

All of your staff were extremely courteous, knowledgable, and a credit to the establishment. The food was very good, the service quick and friendly.

The decor is excellent, the room comfortable, and the price was a pleasant surprise.

We will be back to your area again next year, and we definitely will be staying at the Pioneer Lodge.
