Zion's Emerald Pools Hike
The weather forecast was showing rain showers for the majority of the day but we decided to take a chance and head on out to Zion National Park to do a little shopping, and take a chance on a short hike, hoping the weather would hold out.
Zion is only about a 45 minute scenic drive from St. George, Utah.
The shuttles are running now through summer for the majority of the park and you are required to park at either the park entrance or one of several locations in the town of Springdale. It's a 40 minute shuttle ride from the first stop to the last stop and the shuttles run both directions at 15 minute intervals. You aren't required however to take a shuttle if you are heading over to the east side of the park towards Mount Carmel Junction.
