My mouth was agape while driving through Zion National Park in Utah, and I had not even made it to the main canyon in the park. It was so spectacular that I had to go to the bathroom. I pulled off the road and looked for a tree. Instead I found this slot canyon. I was intrigued and kept walking and it was beautiful.
The moral of the story is when in Zion, take some time to get off the main track and do some backcountry hiking. There is beauty and adventure like this picture around every corner.

Zion NP is just gorgeous! Did you make it to the narrows?
I am probably one of the few people who went to Zion and did not hike the narrows. I did get down the main camping area and saw the main canyons from the road, but did not hike the trail.
I spent two nights in the backcountry in the Northgate Peaks and the Hop Valley. Not as sensational as the narrows, but pretty effing incredible in their own right.
I will get back there soon to rectify that wrong.
