Kolob Canyon
Photo Location: UTAH 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 10-07-2012, 10:30 PM

This canyon is part of Zion NP, but you must leave the park and travel north on I-15 and take exit 40 to reach the 5-mile twisting road that runs along the Hurricane Fault, a fracture in the earth's crust stretching over 150-miles reaching from near the Grand Canyon to Cedar City, marking the western edge of the Markagunt Plateau. Erosion along the Hurricane Fault has served to change the landscape of Zion. The short scenic drive ascends 1100 feet, showcasing deep reddish-orange cliffs, and has many turnouts to stop and take photos or hike. The first 6 photos show the beauty and massive cliffs that are within the canyon, the rest show the upheaval of the earthquake that changed and raised the strata. If you are able to visit Zion, take a little time out and visit Kolob Canyon, not many people visit here. Thanks for traveling with us and taking a look. Bob

WOW
You went to Kolob Canyon,too.
I have never been there. It is so far away from main park.

So you may be filled up with red rocks during this travel.

Lots of red sand and dust from our visits to the sandstone parks. Thank you for viewing, we didn't go to the casinos though in Mesquite.

A unique park, although the drive is only 5 miles into the canyon, the landscape changes as you progress, interesting place to visit,

thanks so much Heinrich, isn't it great to camp in these places like you and I do and be surrounded by the unusual and beautiful landscapes no matter where we go.
