Zion National Park Named Utah’s ‘best’ Attraction by KSL

After a long few weeks of voting, and 64 nominations later, Zion National Park finally took first place and beat Bryce Canyon National Park in the competition for Utah’s ‘best’ attraction. Which isn’t too surprising, seeing as last Memorial Day Weekend over 71,000 visitors went to Zion as the park is packed with stunning hikes and captivating views from just about every angle possible. Zion National Park is barred none one of the most beautiful places to visit here in Utah.

What Pushed Zion Over The Edge

Visiting Southern Utah is an experience in itself, but visiting Zion is definitely something you will not regret. Surely one of the many reasons Zion made the top choice was due to one of its most popular hikes is Angels Landing. This is a rigorous hike that takes most about 4-5 hours to complete. The hike takes you to the top of Angel’s Landing where you will get one of the most beautiful views of Zion Canyon possible. So although the hike can be difficult, it is definitely worth it.

Warner Valley Overlook

Zion is known worldwide for having some of the most stunning and dramatic canyons you can find anywhere. Standing atop Angels Landing or the Overlook Trail is just an inspiring experience. At least that’s what I used to think until I had the opportunity to go for a helicopter ride in Zion. After which everything I thought I knew about Zion and southern Utah was turned up on its head.

You see I’ve spent a considerable time in the backcountry of Zion, and St George, I’ve seen some amazing places that by comparison few have ever seen, but as we took off and began our trip to St George and then ending up skirting the outskirts of Zion (you can’t actually fly into the park itself), I realized that I have seen so very little of what is really out there.

The Bucket List

There are few things I love more than being able to place a check mark next to something I’ve always dreamed about doing.

Zion by Helicopter

A “Heli-va-Good Time”

(This Article Appeared on ZionNationalPark.com in December, 2014) [/fusion_builder_column]Zion Helicopter Tours I‘m not a fan of hype. With 10 years of experience in marketing, I’m repelled by the over-use of superlatives and exclamation marks. So when I describe my experience on a “doors-off” helicopter photo shoot of Zion in late November, I’m going to have to restrain myself. In two words: “MIND BLOWING.”

Zion Helicopters 70 Mile Tour Route

I’ve seen some beautiful things in my life, and I’ve had my share of exhilarating experiences. With nearly 100 white-water river trips through the Grand Canyon, I’m not new to the world of scenic adventure. I don’t take it lightly when I tell you that, in the past several years, I can’t remember spending a more enjoyable 60 minutes.

“Molly’s Nipple”

(This article appeared in the St. George News on January 11, 2015)

HURRICANE – In this Episode 16 of the “No Filter show,” Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair explore a famous butte in Hurricane Valley called Mollies Nipple, discovering in the process one of the most amazing vantage points in Southern Utah, with the benefit of an incredible ride and overview via Zion Helicopters.

Mollies Nipple, so designated without an apostrophe in accordance with standards established by the U.S. Board on Geological Names, sits 1,353 feet above the valley floor and 4,593 feet above sea level. Technically a butte, or isolated hill with steep sides and a flat top and more narrow than a Mesa, Mollies Nipple can be seen from as far as Washington City and the City of St. George.
