Zion National Park
Hidden Canyon

The hike begins at the Weeping Rock Parking area.
The trail is paved for most of the way, but ends at the Hidden Canyon entrance.

The view from the switchbacks along the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway
from the west side of the tunnels.
The Towers of the Virgin, Altar of Sacrfice, The Beehives 6,904' and The Sentinel 7,157'
In the middle is the Streaked Wall.

This section reminds me of Yosemite, see the Half-Dome looking mesa in the middle?
The Towers of the Virgin, and the blood-stained Altar of Sacrfice.
