This is the great outdoors! There isn’t a supermarket for miles!

Zionin kansallispuisto (engl. Zion National Park) on Yhdysvaltojen lounaisosassa, Utahin osavaltiossa sijaitseva kansallispuisto. Kansallispuisto kattaa 593 km²:n kokoisen maa-alan. Sen merkittävin nähtävyys on 24 km pitkä Zionin kanjoni, joka on syvimmillään 800 m syvä. Virginjoki on uurtanut sen punaruskeaan hiekkakiveen vuosisatojen kuluessa.

Zion National Park is a United States National Park located in southern Utah. The park protects the incredible rock formations and high sandstone cliffs within its boundaries, and is a favorite spot for hiking, backpacking, canyoneering and climbing. In fact, Zion has some of the most spectacular trails in the National Park System. Visitors to Zion walk on the canyon floor and look up, rather than looking down from the rim as in many parks. In addition to the magnificent monoliths and cliffs, the park is known for its desert landscape of sandstone canyons, mesas, and high plateaus.
