Shuttle Narration

Zion Canyon is full of amazing wildlife, history, and geology. As you ride the shuttle up Zion Canyon, the shuttle narration introduces you to some of these wonders. However, when the shuttles are not in operation, you can still follow along! In this first pilot episode of Canyon Conversations, we have taken the narration found on the Zion Canyon shuttles and made it accessible for anyone who would like to listen. You'll hear from park biologists, rock climbers, and artists, interspersed with moments of silence so you can appreciate the incredible beauty of Zion National Park.
