Hi there, this is Eric, and I'm a professional nature photographer living near Zion National Park in Southern Utah.

Canyon Junction Bridge

The Canyon Junction Bridge is one of the most iconic locations in Zion National Park, offering an amazing view of the Virgin River and The Watchman. The composition here is great, particularly at sunset when The Watchman glows red and the curving Virgin River reflects the sky. Parking is limited for this spot, with all parking located past the bridge itself. You can also walk the Pa' rus trail from the Visitor Center, which follows the Virgin River to the bridge. Canyon Junction Bridge is most often photographed at sunset and night but can have great light in the morning too.
