Welcome to Southern Utah
There are few places in the world that are promoted as tourist destinations more than Utah and most of this promotion is aimed at locations in Southern Utah, specifically the five National Parks. This photo was not taken in a National Park. For example, Zion National Park is estimated to have had 4.5 million visitors in 2017 and that is only one small concentrated area of the state. Being in Zion National Park on a busy day is very similar to the number of people on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on an average day. Those of us who live in Utah know where to go and when to go there. Why should I tell you where this photo was taken? That would only promote more visitors to an area that is wonderful, beautiful and not crowded with people.
