Zion National Park, located near Springdale, Utah, covers 229 square miles (590 kilometers-squared). The primary feature of the park is Zion Canyon, which is 15 miles (24 kilometers) long and up to half a mile (800 meters) deep cut through the sandstone by the North Fork of the Virgin River. The lowest elevation is 3,666 ft (1,117 meters) at Coalpits Wash and the highest elevation is 8,726 ft (2,660 meters) at Horse Ranch Mountain. Located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin, and Mojave Desert regions, the park's unique geography and variety of life zones allow for unusual plant and animal diversity.
The park is home to 289 bird, 79 mammals, 28 reptiles, 7 fish and 6 amphibian species. Common daytime animals include mule deer, rock squirrels, pinyon jays and whiptail and collared lizards. Desert cottontails, jackrabbits and Merriam's kangaroo rats come out at night. Cougars, coyotes, gray foxes and ring-tail cats are the top predators. Golden eagles, red-tailed hawks, peregrine falcons and white-throated swifts can be seen in the area. California condors and bighorn sheep were reintroduced in the 1990s. Nineteen species of bat also live in the area.
Zion National Park includes mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons and natural arches. The geology of the Zion canyon area includes 9 formations that together represent 150 million years of mostly Mesozoic-aged sedimentation and beautiful erosion. Notable geographical features of the park include the Virgin River Narrows, Emerald Pools, Hidden Canyon, Angels Landing, The Great White Throne, Checkerboard Mesa, The Three Patriarchs and Kolob Arch.
