For our last day in Zion, we decided to exit out the East Tunnel and then head on to Lake Powell for our last night before heading back home. This is one of the most awe-inspiring parts of the park. You travel up and out of the canyon and through the famous tunnel that was built beginning in the 1920's and completed in the 1930's.

Since we had left the campground fairly early, we did not face much traffic heading out. We did get to see the bighorn sheep as we left the area. There was a nice place for us to pull out and watch them until they disappeared from view. Nice treat!

The ride back to Lake Powell was uneventful and we had our pick of the campsite since the holiday season was over. Pleasant evening and of course watching the changing colors on the lake as the sun set.
