Along Rte 12 we drove a winding road above the snow line. We went into Zion National Park Kolob Canyon and drove around.
The roadbed blended nicely with the surrounding area, the skies were an incredible shade of blue with clouds floating by.
We drove over to the Springdale entrance to Zion and drove through the Zion Mount Carmel tunnel and found some amazing topography and views.
The checkerboard mesa is a well photographed site.
Later we drove to the Grand Canyon for some incredible vistas. The far rim is almost 18 miles away.
Almost a mile below the Colorado River winds it way down exposing the layers of the canyon. A watchful raven takes in the views everyday.

If you look closely you can see the river in this photo in the right.
The canyons around Sedona are also breath-taking, can you imagine waking up to this view every day?
