Zion National Park, located in the southwest corner of Utah, is a magnificent canyon of towering monoliths and red sandstone cliffs. The park extends over 30 miles and covers 229 square miles. Zion National Park received its name from early Mormon settlers, and many of the formations in the park have names from the Bible. The park was first established in 1909 as Mukuntuweap National Monument, but in 1919 the monument received national park status and was renamed Zion National Park. Zion National Park with its many canyons is home to several different species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish.

Protected within Zion National Park is a spectacular cliff-and-canyon landscape and wilderness full of the unexpected including Kolob Arch - the world's largest arch - with a span that measures 310 feet. Zion National Park is full of beautiful colors, scenery, and wildlife. Wildlife such as mule deer, golden eagles, and mountain lions also inhabit the Park. The sandstone which makes up most of the rock in Zion National Park was formed by the compacting of sand about 150 million years ago. This occurred when cementing properties of compounds such as calcium carbonate compacted the sand, which covered the huge desert of the west.

Dunes were at that time formed into the present day Navajo Sandstone. The next stage of creation occurred starting close to 4 million years ago when streams running of the Colorado Plateau caused the Virgin River to flood. As the river flowed through current area of Zion National Park, it eroded the rock away taking boulders, sand, and pebbles with it. Over time it formed, or rather carved the canyons of Zion National Park that we see today.
