📍Zion National Park is the LAST STOP on our trip through the United States National Park list! 📍 Zion is part of a vast picture; one that includes other Parks and Monuments in the Southwest. Looking at a topological map reveals Zion is located on the western edge of the Colorado Plateau. Also scattered about the plateau are Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Canyon National Park and Cedar Breaks National Monument which together build the five steps and risers of the geologic area known as the Grand Staircase. Over 200-million years ago, the area where Zion is today was a great desert basin. Over vast spans of time, mountains eroded and material was transported by slow-moving streams and rivers depositing sand in a vast basin. Conditions and the environment changed as time passed and sea water covered dunes of sand. Calcium carbonate cemented loose grains of sand making hard sandstone. The seabed turned to limestone and mud and clay changed to mudstone and shale, forming the sweeping diagonal cross-bedding that Zion National Park is famous for. #geology #zionnationalparkutah #utah #scenery #beautiful #sky #rocks #earthscience #adventure #travel
