The Great White Throne, Zion National Park, Utah

Another iconic view from Zion National Park. The Great White Throne is one of many such landmarks with Biblical names. The name comes from Revelation 20:11-15. The rock is composed of Navajo Sandstone and is often used as the symbol of the park. The top of the rock is 6744 feet above sea level and the facing cliff is over 2,300 feet. In the foreground, almost not visible is the Virgin River that runs through the park.
