Tall Tales From The Field

Zion Rockfall

It has been a rough week at Zion National Park and this morning, a major rockfall blocked Highway 9, which travels through the park. Luckily, no one was injured. Road to be reopened tonight?  Pic courtesy of NPS.

UPDATE-  ROAD MAY NOT OPEN UNTIL WEEKEND BECAUSE OF INSTABILITY OF ROCKS ABOVE

  2. We’ve experienced a rock slide in Superior, Arizona before, but it was definitely nothing of this magnitude! Very glad to hear no one was injured at Zion.
