Zion National Park: Sacred Cliffs By Michael Korfhage, Joel Anderson, 2015
- Zion National Park: Sacred Cliffs
Zion National Park is known for its impressive geological formations, massive sandstone buttes and escarpments that rise out of the ground as if pushed by some mighty force beneath. What is unique about these cliffs is the attraction of vegetation to them. Many of the cliffs are surrounded by grasses and arid scrub bushes, some of which climb up the sides of the cliffs, almost all the way to the top. Such vegetation makes for perfect eateries for the Bighorn sheep that call Zion National Park their home. This original Anderson Design illustrates those impressive cliffs, the greenery that climb up them, and a lone sheep who pauses in his grazing.
