After deciding on a whim to do a Grand Circle trip I started doing some research about which parks we should prioritize on the trip. Literally every person I asked who had done a similar trip said Zion was a must see. Quite a few people even said they preferred it over the Grand Canyon! After seeing Zion National Park for myself I can see why. Part of what sets Zion apart from the other parks, at least to me, was how green it was. This park gets more rainfall than most of the other parks in the Grand Circle area so there is a lot more vegetation. This results in a dramatic landscape of bright green framed by epic canyon walls and a wide open blue sky. It's easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to.
