South Fork of Taylor Creek
Kolob Canyon is the "other" Zion. Part of the park, but accessed via a separate entrance, this area encompasses the less-explored but equally spectacular northern reaches of the Zion.

We did the route with two bivis and I will never forget the shadows the morning light casts on the New Ha...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
