We arrived at Zion Canyon Campground on a Tuesday. We drove through a good part of Zion on our way to the campground. There is a tunnel that you must drive through and if you are too big you must pay a fee and then they shutdown the two way traffic so that the oversized vehicles can fit through. We closed in our rearview mirrors to make us smaller but it wasn't necessary because there was a bigger vehicle in front of us. He had to pay the $15 permit fee and we and many others after him were able to travel through for free. We lucked out. We left on a Saturday and we again lucked out because the park was so crowded that they just took turns letting groups of cars go though the tunnel for free.
The campground was better than Mom and I expected. It had a paved road and the sites were a red sand. There were a few places with grass.

|I am feeling much better.|
