EAST ZION SLOT CANYON SAFARI – JEEP TOUR
The east side of Zion National Park literally beckons the true adventurer to descend into its depths on a jeep tour. This trip is a real treat to offer. Difficult access and a real sense of wilderness make this adventure a true “must do” trip for any connoisseur of canyon country.
After a hair-raising 4X4 descent to the canyon’s bottom, incised by the waters of the East Fork of the Virgin River , we hike amidst soaring slot canyon walls, hanging gardens and native fauna as we explore the seldom viewed recesses of Parunaweap.
Your guide will offer insights to the geologic processes that formed this and other canyons on the Colorado Plateau. These canyons are stained multiple hues of red by iron that has oxidized as it leaches from the sandstone.
Contrast the red of the rock with the green of the foliage and the blue of the sky and you have a recipe for visual mangificence.
