Zion National Park

This is a beautiful, spiritual place.
Modified From Wikipedia:
Zion Canyon, a prominent feature, is 15 miles (24 km) long and up to half a mile (800 m) deep, and has been cut through the reddish and tan-colored Navajo Sandstone by the North Fork of the Virgin River.
Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave Desert regions, the park’s unique geography and variety of life zones allow for unusual plant and animal diversity. Numerous plant species as well as 289 species of birds, 75 mammals (including 19 species of bat), and 32 reptiles inhabit the park’s four life zones: desert, riparian, woodland, and coniferous forest. Zion National Park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches.
