The Virgin River in southern Utah offers some glossed over beauty that many don’t stop and appreciate enough. This image is of it right before the Narrows hike in Zion. The Virgin river continues on for many miles beyond Zion and there are a lot of spots along it’s path that are so beautiful.

If you get there at the right time of year when there’s enough snow-pack then you can kayak it and experience some great rapids.
