Day 6: ZION PARK – LAS VEGAS – LOS ANGELES
Zion National Park
This park got its name from the Mormons that settled in the area.

Tour the park and enjoy a short walking trail along the Virgin River that runs through the park, before leaving this amazing area for an early evening arrival in Las Vegas, an option for a late-night return to Los Angeles.
