Road Trip SR-9: Zion - Bryce

Updated: Jun 7, 2022

I believe one of the greatest drives in America is Zion National Park - Bryce Canyon. The vibrant red and orange rocks echo the evaporating remains of an ancient lake bed.

From Quail Creek to Red Canyon, every stop along the SR-9 is beautiful. On the way to Zion, I dipped into Quail, rented a kayak from Digg Paddlesports, then jumped off a cliff in Sand Hollow.

From there, we picked up my nephews and drove through the Mt. Carmel Tunnel to Checkerboard Mesa, Zion.

If you look closely, you might see a mountain goat!

As you exit the Mt. Carmel Tunnel (East entrance) take a right into the parking lot, cross the street and take a step into heaven on the Zion Canyon Overlook Trail. It's ALL the views without the sacrifice of Angel's Landing.
