Renae Stucki Realtor wanted to take a minute and talk about one of the most incredible natural treasures of the Southern Utah area.  Zion National Park.  This amazing area is located in Washington County and draws thousands of visitors every year.  Later in the post, we’ll include some photos of different areas of the park and you can see for yourself just how beautiful it is.

But first, let’s use Wikipedia to enhance our knowledge of the park…

Located in Southwestern part of the United States and Utah, a prominent feature of the 229 sq. mile park is Zion Canyon; which is 15 miles long and up to a half mile deep, cut through the reddish and tan colored Navajo Sandstone by the North Fork of the Virgin River.  The lowest elevation is 3,666 ft at Coalpits Wash and the highest elevation is 8,726 ft at Horse Ranch Mountain.  

The park is located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin and Mojave Desert regions.  This adds to the diverse and unique geography with a variety of life zones allowing for unusual plant growth and animals.

Zion includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons and natural arches.

Springdale is the sleepy tourist community located at the entrance to the southern portion of the park and Orderville is the eastern village.  Both are quaint little towns with all kinds of unique shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational activities available for visitors to enjoy.

The area is so picturesque, you could check into a hotel and enjoy the town without ever venturing into the park.  That’s how scenic and beautiful the area is.

And that’s one of the reasons living in St. George is so magnificent.  We can visit and see the natural wonder anytime we choose.  It’s part of our community and part of what makes this area so special.
