After Bryce Canyon we stayed overnight at Cedar City before going to the Zion National Park.
We drove along the floor of the Zion Canyon, where the colourful sandstone walls rose into the sky.
The tour bus dropped us at the visitor centre and we were given two hours to explore by ourselves.
The guide suggested we get a shuttle bus further into the canyon and take a walk. We chose the Sinawava Temple walk, where we followed the Virgin River to where the canyon gets very narrow.
We made friends with Helen and John, who were on our tour. They are from Tasmania. It was nice walking with them.
It was an easy relaxing walk by the babbling river with the colourful cliffs towering above us. Just beautiful.
All too soon the two hours were up and it was time to return to our coach. Next stop Grand Canyon. One could spend two weeks here exploring all the walks.
