Geographic Areas-Things To See & Do In Zion

One of the most striking features of Zion are the sheer vertical sandstone cliffs. Many of the trails are quite steep. Hiking these natural stair-masters in the desert heat works up a great deal of sweat. Heat and sun exposure incidents are common in Zion. Drink! And Eat! It is important to keep your body well hydrated and fueled throughout the day with frequent snacks. Save your skin and regulate your temperature by wearing sunscreen, hats, and protective clothing. The desert is a harsh environment with extreme temperature changes in just one day. Sunny and hot one minute, freezing cold and storming the next. You should be prepared for anything! Weather happens! Cold, hot, wind, rain, hail, or snow can occur any time of the year. Always carry appropriate clothing for a wide range of conditions, you’ll be happy you did!
