I love Zion National Park for its uniqueness and unprecedented beauty. But because of its proximity to Las Vegas, it is always crowded. It is popular among Las Vegas visitors to take a day trips to Zion.
But, since the most visitors from Las Vegas do not have much time or simply too lazy to explore the park beyond the parking lots, it is very easy to find empty spots without much of the effort. All it takes is a short 5 min walk deep into the park and you hardly see any people.
I took the featured photo during the hike in the Eastern area of the Zion and it took me only a couple of minutes walk from the busy Utah State Route 9 to find emptiness and serenity.
