Zion National Park in Utah delivers winter charm with a peaceful elegance. Nearly half of Zion Canyon's annual precipitation falls between December and March and when the temperatures drop, that means snow and frost display beautifully. Depending on elevation, the snow may accumulate or melt away quickly -- either way - it's a special time to experience the park. Check on the current conditions from the website and prepare accordingly. There's nothing like experiencing Zion's trees illuminated with hoarfrost and its 2,000-foot Navajo Sandstone cliffs, seeps and streams decorated with a fresh coat of snow.
