So beautiful! I cannot tell you how many photos I took. Everywhere I looked, I wanted to take a picture. When we left the park the next day, I saw things that I didn't notice before. Such a great adventure!

We ended up driving through Zion National Park on accident on our way to Page Arizona. Our navigation took us and it was amazing. I have never seen such beautiful scenery before.

I believe you will be able to take your car. I THINK the shuttle is usually for spring, summer & fall. November may be the start of winter season, perhaps usually the middle. You’ll enjoy it all!!
