I have lived in Utah for three years and I am beyond wowed by the scenery here. Zions is amazing, but compared to other National Parks, it is not the best. Granted, the hikes and scenery is beautiful, but the Park is so popular that is is very crowded. Think about Capitol Reef, Arches, Cayonlands, Bryce...the list can go on forever. Zion's is great, but there are TONS of better hikes in this fantasticlt beautiful State.
