Canyon Overlook Trail - Zion National Park - 9/5/13

View from Canyon Overlook Trail
 Six hikers arrived at Zion NP for the latest hike offered on Thursday. A short drive through the long tunnel brought them to the parking area just across the road from the trailhead at the other end of the tunnel. A few steps took them up to a scenic half mile hike around the hill to an overlook that is situated directly above the huge closed arch called the Great Arch of Zion. From the overlook, they saw a clouded Zion Canyon and the switchbacked road leading to the long tunnel entrance. As they returned to the trailhead, they noticed several pools of water in the deep canyon below.
