We got to Las Vegas this morning at 8 a.m. and a little over two hours later (about 170 miles) we were in Zion National Park in southwestern Utah.
Weather is very hot and sunny. Yes, it's dry heat but at about 100 degrees, it's still hot.
After a stop for lunch in Springdale, right by the park's south entrance, ( good Mexican food!), were drove to the lodge,our home for the next three days.
To get oriented, we took the park shuttle to the visitor center. Cars are not allowed to drive in the park, so it is shuttle or hike.
The rock formations are spectacular. We are too hot to hike now, but tomorrow for sure.
