Good-bye Zion National Park, we had three marvelous days now it’s time to move on. As we were leaving we drove through two tunnels and saw another side of Zion landscape with more trees and the sandstone had different details. When we went through the tunnels they had to close traffic coming from the other direction because they didn’t want any accidents and we had to drive down the center of the road. The first tunnel was huge and had cutouts that gave you nice views of Zion and the second tunnel was very short. We stopped at an overview of Patterns in Stone, the pattern was a unique checkerboard.

After leaving Zion we stopped at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park for the night. It was a pretty park with pink dunes that are open for off-highway-vehicles (OHV), they run for miles and miles but only seven miles are open to OHVs. The park provides a nice day area where you can see the dunes, barbecue on a gas grill if you bring your own propane and restrooms. The sites have no hook-ups but they have concrete pads for the table, grill, fire rings and a lot of trees. There are bathrooms with running water and showers, we were grateful for the showers. Flo really wanted to lay outside but it was too cold for me. When it was dinnertime the sun came out so Larry barbecued chicken with charcoal and Flo and I kept him company.
