  • I read a lot of opinions on the places the summer, I'm so glad went in off season (early December) is wonderful, it seems we're alone in the world (among the deer) essential!

  • We drove through this Canyon Park since we did not have enough time, and the experience was unusual and great! Unforgettable, as we were driving between the huge rocks, trees and river combinations. E...  more »
  • The road goes toward a Gorge formed by the Virgin River where you see the rock walls increasingly closer among them. It is impressive to see how high that are the walls. At first glance does not detect a group of climbers who had a wall until after a certain time looking at the huge walls we realized it. The road comes to a point where to follow it is necessary to go on foot through a nicely paved track of almost 2 km, even is recommended to go in a wheelchair. At the end of the said track and if you wish to continue you must enter on the River in the area called "Narrows". This road is the best choice for entering the Park. There is a series of bus that with a periodicity of about 5 minutes you carry by all them points of the Park. There are many points that are worth stand and walk a few steps to see stunning views. If you have only one day should be selected well travels because you can it eat much time and not get to see the entire route of the road.
