We entered from the east side from Highway 89. We were supposed
to meet Brandon and Nick, who were climbing a big wall somewhere
near Angels Landing,
but someone forgot to turn on their walkie-talkie. Park entrance
fees are $20 per car, We finally bought a National Park Pass
which is $50 but it gets you into most every park.
If you want to drive down the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive, you can't, but you can take the Shuttle System, which isn't too bad, unless you are in a hurry.
