  • Zion Canyon Scenic Drive (Zion National Park): The 12-mile round-trip drive through Zion Canyon is impressive no matter how you do it -- in your own vehicle (in winter only) or on the shuttle from spring through fall. In every direction the views are awe-inspiring, as the massive stone formations reach for the heavens. The road also provides easy access to a number of wonderful viewpoints and trail heads just off the roadway.
  • Angels Landing (Zion National Park): The strenuous Angels Landing Trail leads across a high narrow ridge to a spectacular and dizzying view of Zion Canyon. Warning: The last half-mile of this trail is along a knife-edge ridge -- definitely not for anyone with a fear of heights.
  • The Narrows (Zion National Park): The sheer 1,000-foot-high walls are awe-inspiring, almost frightening, as they enclose you in a narrow world of hanging gardens, waterfalls, and sculpted sandstone arches, with the Virgin River pouring over and around your feet and legs -- but the views make it worth getting wet. Warning: Because the Narrows is prone to flash flooding, check weather forecasts carefully before setting out.
