A Walk to Remember.
For three hours Wednesday evening, the Zion – Mount Carmel Highway
was closed to car traffic inside Zion National Park to let 300 people walk through the tunnel. It may have been the last time for people to do so legally
for the foreseeable future.
When the tunnel was first built, cars could stop at galleries built into the tunnel to stop and look at the canyon below. With increased traffic this became too dangerous and became disallowed. Walking through the tunnel is also illegal.
This event was part of the Zion National Park
