We wanted to hit at least one “new” national park while on our travels and we’d heard nothing but great things about Zion, so that’s where we headed.
The only problem, was that it was Labor Day weekend. There was a LOT of traffic going in and out of the park. The parking lot to the visitor’s center was full and in order to get in the park, we would have had to have hopped on a bus in town to get in. I was not up for that. We were able to drive through the park, but not able to see certain parts of it. It was still worth the drive though and it would definitely be worth visiting again off season.
