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 still in residence in 1858 when Mormon missionaries arrived. The Paiute called the area Mukuntuweap which means “straight canyon” in Southern Pauite.

This presentation - a work-in-progress - features photos from the park as well as screenshots documenting the park online from official and independent sources. Suggestions are welcome as we update this presentation.

In 1918, the acting director of the newly created National Park Service changed the park's name to Zion and on November 19, 1919 the United States Congress established the monument as Zion National Park.
