As we had stayed so close to the east entrance of Zion we only had a short drive to enter the park. As you come in that side you drive some way before you get to the actual visitor centre. We stopped at a few lookouts and then drove through the tunnel which is over a mile long cut through solid rock. The tunnel is cool and we had to do a uturn go back and come through again. Just because we can. Once at the visitor centre we parked the car and then caught a shuttle bus to the different stops through the park. During summer you cannot drive into the main part of the park. There are 9 bus stops where you get on and off when you like. We caught the bus to the last stop, the Temple of Sinawava. That has a great walk along river until you get to where you have to then walk in the river as it goes to the narrows. Spent a few hours in the park and ended up leaving at about 4pm. There was going to be about a 3 hour drive to Vegas from Zion. The trip was good thanks to the 80 mph limit getting us to the Luxor by 7pm. Checked in had a shower and got some dinner. Was a long day and we went to bed early as I wanted to get up early and use the spa area in the morning. The next 4 days are all in Vegas and I will do one post for the entire stay there.
