The day before we ended our trip in St George in Utah. The weather was not that bad in St George itself, i.e. no storms or other adversities. So as planned we visited Zion National Park near St George. But here we had another surprise. The actual valley with the sights was only pe bus shuttle to reach.
Actually, no problem, but this time the park was again so extremely crowded with tourists so that I was spoiled the fun. So I decided to drive through the park and make a turn around and drive back to St. George.
