Springdale, a view and that river again


After the amazing drive through Zion National Park, we stayed at this Springhill Suites Marriott in Springdale, Utah. The view from the hotel was amazing. The photo to the right is from the hotel website.  

We had dinner at a local burger place, then went to bed. After a very good nights rest, we awoke energized by the view. We took several photos before we headed south, including the photo above. Teresa captured this shot just before we drove off. I love this photo. Water always makes a photo better, but the overall scene is so cool.  

This is the North Fork Virgin River. We spend so much of our drive crisscrossing the Virgin River, so it was fitting that we spent the night within feet of the this fork of the river. 

If you are visiting Zion National Park, I can recommend this hotel. You can camp in the area too, but I like sleeping in a big king size bed.
