IMG_4103

Inside the Cockrell Butterfly Center you will find both steamy, and cool relaxing environments. There is plenty of wonder, including plants, flowers, iguanas, and of course butterflies. There is also a large waterfall which provides a nice background audio track as you enjoy the different levels of the exhibit.

Zion National Park – Tunnel and Beyond

IMG_3282

Zion is such a great adventure.  If you drive the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway, about 6 miles from the Visitor Center, you will find the Tunnel.  It is about 1.1 miles long, and when it was completed in 1930, it was the longest tunnel of its type in the United States.  It is a dark and spooky drive with a few openings along the way that let in some light and some views of the mountains.  Beyond the Tunnel is a completely different section of the Park with some great hiking spots to explore.
