Geology

Zion National Park is famous for its Navajo sandstone walls that tower above the Virgin River.

Zion Canyon runs 15 miles long and up to half a mile deep

Flora

The bloom of the sacred datura (also called moon lily or moon flower) is often seen throughout the park in the summer. This familiar looking plant is a member of the family Solanaceae, a close relative of the tomato, potato, and eggplant. However, unlike some of the other edible plants in this family, every part of the datura is poisonous. Look for the datura’s beautiful bloom in the early evening and at night when its flower unfurls. By noon the next day, it will typically be closed.

Wildlife

Mule deer are named for their mule-like ears, a great adaptation for living in the desert. Large ears not only help them hear exceptionally well, but they serve as a cooling system. – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCwbeUtyW1E

Misc

This Week: There still should be some great fall color on the east side of the park in oaks and maples. The cottonwoods Zion Canyon should be getting better as well, but not quite peak.
