Yours truly at Upper Emerald Pool. Photo was taken by a British lady I met on the shuttle bus, who was a UN intepreter, and spoke 7+ languages. On the shuttle bus,I overheard her husband was whining about his feet hurting, so she asked to hike along with me, and he stayed behind

On the hike back from Emerald Pool(s),which were not impressive...

Hiking with the masses along a paved trail

No vehicles are allowed in Zion Canyon section. Everone takes the free (with admission) shuttle from point to point. How quaint and rustic...

Hiker across Virgin River. Lots of people had rented water shoes just to do this hike!

Behind Zion Visitor Center. Shuttle busses in distance

Heading East on Rt. 9. Impressive arch

1930's Zion-Mt. Carmel tunnel to east side of park allows single direction of traffic. Busses have to go down the middle

I found the scenery more diverse and better on the east side
