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.

This area feels untouched and has a strange beauty about it. Expect to get out of this area what you put into it. Weather can be a little more alpine as Kolob sits at a much higher elevation than the main area.
