New Harmony in Washington County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Kolob Canyons-Zion National Park
These canyons are not permanent scenery. Many rockfalls shaped the dynamic and evolving canyons. Dramatic facelifts like the 1983 rockfall are relatively rare, but frequent small piles of rocks on the roadway reveal this terrain’s volatile personality. Look for other rockfall scars throughout the park.
