The name Observation Point mildly describes the epic view from this overlook at Zion National Park in Utah. More than 2,000 feet below, the North Fork of the Virgin River winds through the lush canyon, curving around the dramatic fin of Angels Landing. If the elevation gain of the hike there doesn’t take your breath away, then the view surely will. Photo by Leslie Poole (www.sharetheexperience.org).

The Tioga Road at Yosemite National Park in California is now open for visitors exploring the remarkable trails in the Tuolumne Meadows. Removed from the hustle and bustle of Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows offer peaceful surroundings and amazing scenery. Hiking trails for varying levels of difficulty lead to a paradise of water, rock, forest and sky. We recommend cooling your heels at Upper Cathedral Lake.

There are no live dinosaurs today at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, but there are other surprises. For most of its length, the Ruple Point Trail crosses a rolling terrain filled with sagebrush and juniper. Near the end of the trail, a short descent suddenly reveals breathtaking views of Split Mountain Canyon and the Green River 2,500 feet below. It’s a great reward at the halfway point of this 9.5 mile hike. Take plenty of water! Photo by National Park Service.
