Fall is an amazing time of year for nature-lovers and outdoors enthusiasts alike. From the crisp, refreshing air that brings a welcome reprieve from the summer heat, to the brilliant colors of the leaves, fall brings out some of the best that nature has to offer.
Nowhere in the world offers the combination of breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife, and brightly-colored trees like Zion National Park.
When you plan a trip here in the fall, you’ll not only be able to see the Virgin River lined with the red and gold of dying leaves on ancient cottonwoods – you’ll also be treated to a host of animals and wildlife viewing opportunities you just can’t find anywhere else.
Zion National Park is home to 68 different species of mammals, including mule deer, bighorn sheep, and turkeys. The park’s scrub oak turns a brilliant red, so bright it almost looks fake. And all of this is set against the stunning backdrop of Zion’s soaring red cliffs. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch the park on a day when a slight dusting of snow covers the peaks of the monoliths, lending an air of wonder to the scene before your eyes.
