|Looking down into Zion Canyon from East Rim Overlook|
Then we pulled off SR-9 near the "small" tunnel and went for a hike in Clear Creek (which is dry, obviously). The fall colors were out in full force. Its a really cool area...
The East Rim of Zion is full of trails and places to explore. We're already planning some of the things we'd like to do down there next year.
We stopped for lunch near the Checkerboard Mesa viewpoint, then were on our way back to SLC.
