Night skies over southern Utah

This image provides another strong reason why you’ll love to visit Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort.  John from Palo Alto, California sent this image to us a couple of days ago and you can see that Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, and Zion National Park, are far away from light pollution.  This makes star-gazing fantastic and our guests have the privilege of seeing the milky way about as clearly as you will anywhere in the mainland United States.  Click on these images for a larger view.
