Valley Floor: Zion National Park, September 2001 After a stop at the Zion Lodge, we decided to take a hike. We hiked the Middle Emerald Pool Trail up and the lower Emerald Pool Trail back to the lodge. Along the way I took this photo of the canyon. The North Fork of the Virgin River is visible in the foreground. This was the river which created the canyon. (via Robby Edwards’ Photos)
