The Zion In Winter Trip

9 Days devoted mostly to Zion National Park in January

It makes sense that the perfect time to visit one of America's most over-visited parks is during the time when the fewest people are visiting. That's one reason why I spent a week in late January, 2017, hiking through a very snowy Zion National Park. This trip begins and ends in Las Vegas, and includes a few other less-snowy more-deserty places, too. Instead of dividing the trip into days, I'll give you two groups: In Zion, and Near Zion.
