Zion National Park, USA

Ah the nature of the northern american continent...All I could do is sigh when seeing this amazing view. One of the reasons I've decided to get a drivers licence at the late age of 38 is the thought of going on a road trip in North America, to see the things buses and trains don't take you to...thank you Elena for this inspiration.

Zion National Park is located in the Southwestern United States, near Springdale, Utah. A prominent feature of the 229-square-mile (590 km2) park is Zion Canyon, which is 15 miles (24 km) long and up to half a mile (800 m) deep, cut through the reddish and tan-colored Navajo Sandstone by the North Fork of the Virgin River. 
Guided horseback riding trips, nature walks, and evening programs are available from late March to early November. There are also free shuttle-bus services available for the Zion Canyon road.
