Weeping Rock, Zion National Park, Utah

Along the scenic drive in Zion is the very popular Weeping Rock - an overhang that “rains” everyday of the year, creating a small rain forest in the desert. This is a very well-visited destination in Zion, and we also went to enjoy the “rain”. The walkway is a paved, but steep path, with steps at the very end. Weeping Rock itself isn’t huge – although you can easily walk under it. The colors from the rain are quite beautiful, and in the summer many ferns grow along the walls.

We’re told that the best time to come to Weeping Rock is as early as you can get here – first thing in the morning, if possible – this way you can enjoy the rain falling in solitude and peace – rather than later in the day when it’s not quite as peaceful, since everyone is there with you, along with their children that are overdue for a nap. ;-)

Wow, that's interesting!

We love children and know that they need to experience all kinds of stuff. However, when they are overdue for a nap, they should not be brought to church! Or anywhere else except to their bed!
