Zion National Park - http://planeta.wikispaces.com/zion - is one of our favorite places in the USA. Ancestral Puebloans inhabited the area from 500-1200 A.D, followed by the Paiute, who were in residence in 1858 when Mormon missionaries arrived. The Paiute called the area Mukuntuweap which means “straight canyon” in Southern Pauite.
