USA 2019 Photographic Workshop (X) – Zion National Park

Zion National Park lies in Utah near Springdale. A prominent feature of park is Zion Canyon, which is 24 km long and up to 800 m deep. The canyon walls are reddish and tan-colored Navajo Sandstone eroded by the North Fork of the Virgin River. The highest peak of the park is Horse Ranch Mountain at 2,660 m. Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave Desert regions, the park’s unique geography means that it might just have the most diverse range of life zones that allows astounding plant and animal diversity. Numerous plant species as well as 289 species of birds, 75 mammals (including 19 species of bats), and 32 reptiles inhabit the park’s four life zones: desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest. Zion National Park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches.
