The east side of Zion National Park offers endless photo opportunities including several short but picturesque slot canyons, hoodoos, and swirling sandstone and is far less crowded than Zion Canyon.

Photography Tips

This is a good spot any time day or night. I used the light from a miniature battery powered lantern to illuminate the foreground in this photo.

Travel Information
