We gazed at Zion National Park splendor one more time this morning before driving out of the park, through the mile long tunnel that was built in 1927-1930.
The tunnel has viewing windows along the outside wall—traffic is stopped at either end of the tunnel when a tall vehicle such as a motorhome needs to go through. The taller vehicles must drive in the middle of the road to avoid scraping their roofs on the tapered side walls.
We took about a 4 mile hike to the bottom of the canyon when we first got here which meant we had to climb back out to the top again, huff, puff. Our hotel is very nice, new. After dinner we drove out to the canyon again to watch sunset but were just a little late.
Tomorrow we are off on our last hike of this trip, Tuesday we start home. It has been an awesome week!
