Das „Einmal-im-Leben-Erlebnis“: „Glamping“ im Zion National Park

Zitat

Aufwachen mit Blick auf die leuchtenden Felsen des Zion National Parks. Im Zelt die Wüste hautnah spüren. Beim Lagerfeuer Natur und Sternenhimmel genießen. Fast allein auf der Welt sein – aber mit Lifestyle-Ambiente, eigenem Bad, Premiumrestaurant um die Ecke, Massagen und vielem mehr. Das ist Glamping: Camping mit Glamour und Komfort. In den Weiten Utahs bietet CRD International jetzt diesen Outdoor-Luxus vom Feinsten an. Das Paket enthält zwei Übernachtungen in den Deluxe-Zelten des „Under Canvas® Camps“ – wahlweise für zwei Personen, kleine Gruppen oder Familien. Aktivprogramme runden das Abenteuer ab: vom Wüstenritt über den Helikopterflug bis zur UTV-Tour durchs Gelände.
Natur trifft Luxus
„Das ist ein echtes „once in a lifetime“-Erlebnis“, so Friedrich Roth von CRD International. „Natur trifft Luxus: Die Lage im Westen des spektakulären Nationalparks und das Wüstenfeeling sind schon einzigartig. Dazu kommen die komfortabel und stylish ausgestatteten Zelte mit Badezimmer und Terrasse, viel Platz und Privatsphäre drum herum. Und der komfortable Service des Camps.“ Der Nordamerikaspezialist bietet den neuen Outdoor- und Zeltgenuss ab März 2019 an.
Zelte in verschiedenen Größen – auch für kleine Gruppen und Familien
Genießer und Naturfans haben die Wahl zwischen Deluxe-Zelten für zwei Personen und größeren Einheiten für kleine Gruppen und Familien – dann gibt es ein Schwesternzelt im Tipi-Stil dazu. Das Restaurant im Haupthaus des Camps serviert auf Wunsch alle Mahlzeiten. Für individuelle Barbecues unterm Sternenhimmel – die Region hat ein besonders sauberes Licht – stehen Feuerstellen zur Verfügung.

Kolob Canyons Reopens

Zitat

Closed since road re-construction began in May 2018, the facilities in the Kolob Canyons District of Zion National Park will reopen on Friday February 8, 2019.

The project involved reconstructing sections of the road, repaving the entire road, and adding accessible parking, sidewalk, and two new bathroom facilities. The intensive slope, drainage and grading portions of the project are complete and the road is now open for visitor use. In the Spring when the weather improves, contractors will return to complete final paving and finish remaining project details, but the road will remain open during that work. Expect some traffic delays during final paving in the Spring.

The Kolob Canyons Visitor Center, parking lot off of Interstate 15, and all of the Kolob Canyons Road will be open February 8th. The Taylor Creek Trail, the Timber Creek Overlook Trail, Lee Pass Trailhead, and other areas served via the Kolob Canyons Road will also be available to the public.

Weather-related closures may still occur so visitors are asked to check road and trail conditions and plan accordingly. For the latest news refer to the Park website, Twitter feed, or Facebook posts.

Trail Closures
The Kayenta Trail and Upper Emerald Pools Trail are closed until further notice due to storm damage. The Hidden Canyon Trail was closed on Aug. 28, 2018 due to a rockfall. Observation Point (from Weeping Rock) was closed on Jan. 18, 2019 due to rockfall.

Arizona man rescued from quicksand at Zion National Park in Utah

Zitat

A 34-year-old Arizona man was rescued after his leg sunk down to his knee in quicksand during a hike at Zion National Park in Utah on Saturday.
Park officials said on Monday that the man, who was not identified, was hiking in the Left Fork of the North Creek when he became stuck and was unable to free himself.
He was not alone at the time, his female hiking companion was with him, but their combined efforts to free him were fruitless. Before the woman left for help, she gave the man extra clothes to keep warm. Temperatures on the trail were frigid and reached the low teens, park officials said.
The woman then hiked for three hours in order to gain cellphone service and call emergency authorities, park officials said. When she was located by authorities, they had to treat her for hypothermia.
When the park rangers located the man several hours later, he showed signs of hypothermia, exposure and injuries to his extremities, park officials said. It took several hours to free him from the quicksand.
The park rangers ended up spending the night with the man because he was in no condition to hike out. While there, they began to rewarm him and treat his leg as four inches of snow fell overnight, park officials said.
On Sunday morning, Feb. 17, a Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter responded from Salt Lake City, Utah, to pick the man up. However, according to park officials, winter storms in the area caused low visibility, delaying the helicopter's rescue.
Once a small break in the weather occurred in the afternoon, park officials said the DPS helicopter was able to safely get the man out of the park. He was then transported to a hospital by ambulance.
Quicksand is not normally a problem in the park, said Aly Baltus, spokeswoman for Zion National Park. However, she said the weather at the time was a contributing factor to its formation.
"Colder temperatures, shorter days, snow, ice, and cold run-off can make easy hikes difficult and strenuous ones treacherous," Baltus said. "Visitors are advised to use extreme caution during poor weather events at Zion."

Zion-Mount Carmel Highway Closed due to Road Damage from Storms

Zitat

The Zion-Mount Carmel Highway was closed the evening of March 2, 2019, after reports of an active rockslide on the switchbacks below the tunnel. The area was assessed in the morning of March 3, 2019. A retaining wall failed and eight feet of the road is severely undercut east of the 1st switchback. The Zion-Mount Carmel Highway and Tunnel from the East Entrance to Canyon Junction, is closed until further notice.

Due to this storm, access to Canyon Overlook Trail, near the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel, is closed. Several canyonneering routes have also been closed because they are normally accessed from the closed road. These include Keyhole, Canyon Overlook, Pine Creek, Spry, Clear Creek, Fat Man’s Misery, and Lodge Canyons. The East Rim Trail head is accessible from Zion’s East Entrance. Staff are currently checking trail conditions on the remaining trails.

Alternate east and west driving routes are available via Highway 59 from Hurricane, Utah to Fredonia, Arizona and Highway 14 from Cedar City, Utah to Long Valley Junction and Highway 89. People coming from Interstate 15 to the Park may access the Park as usual by traveling east on State Route 9 through Springdale. All Park facilities including the visitor center, museum, campgrounds, and shuttle buses are open and operating as normal in Zion Canyon. The Kolob Canyons facilities and Kolob Terrace are open as usual.

Visitors should expect trail closures. The Kayenta Trail and Upper Emerald Pools Trail remain closed due to a landslide that has continued to settle since July, 2018. The East Rim Trail, as well as total access to Hidden Canyon and access from the main canyon to Observation Point, remain closed due to a landslide and an unstable overhanging boulder since January, 2019.

Eastern Half Of Zion-Mount Carmel Highway Reopening At Zion National Park

Zitat

While engineers are working on a plan to fix an undercut section of the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway at Zion National Park, the eastern segment of the road is reopening to the tunnel.
A section of the highway was washed out during a rainstorm last Saturday evening. Park officials announced Thursday that the portion of highway from the East Entrance to the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel will reopen at 9 a.m. Friday, but be limited in hours and size of vehicles. The Zion-Mount Carmel Highway remains closed from the tunnel to Canyon Junction. No thru traffic will be allowed until temporary repairs are in place.
The east side of the park will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Traffic will be turned around prior to the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel. Vehicles sized 7’10’’ in width or 11’4’’ in height, or larger, will not be allowed on the east side due to limited-radius turning areas.
Visitors may access the East Rim Trail and the Canyon Overlook Trail from the re-opened section of road. East side canyoneering routes -- Keyhole, Canyon Overlook, Pine Creek, Spry, Clear Creek, Fat Man’s Misery, and Lodge Canyons -- will remain closed until more reliable road access is ensured that can safely support canyoneering activities.
The park is currently working with Federal Highways on repairs for the section of road that was affected by the storm. A timeline will be made available once the engineering assessment and repair design have been finalized.
Alternate east and west driving routes are available via Highway 59 from Hurricane, Utah to Fredonia, Arizona, and Highway 14 from Cedar City, Utah, to Long Valley Junction and Highway 89. People coming from Interstate 15 to the park may access the park as usual by traveling east on State Route 9 through Springdale.
All park facilities including the visitor center, museum, campgrounds, and shuttle buses are open and operating as normal in Zion Canyon. The Kolob Canyons Scenic Drive, the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center and Kolob Terrace Road are also open.
Intense or extensive precipitation can result in geologic instability with the steep slopes and highly erosive soils found in the park. Visitors to the Zion Canyon should expect trail closures from landslides from past storms. The Kayenta Trail and Upper Emerald Pools Trail remain closed due to a landslide that has continued to settle since July 2018. The East Rim Trail, as well as total access to Hidden Canyon and access from Zion Canyon to Observation Point, remain closed due to a landslide with unstable overhanging boulders that occurred this past January.
So far this water year (October 1, 2018- March 6, 2019), Zion Canyon has received 13.45 inches of precipitation. During the same time period one year ago, the area received 2.9 inches of precipitation.

Zion-Mount Carmel Highway Opens; No Oversized Vehicles

Zitat

he Zion-Mount Carmel Highway, the Route 9 connector road through Zion National Park, was closed the evening of March 2, 2019, after heavy rains undercut the road. One lane of the road will temporarily reopen at 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, March 12, 2019. However, due to safety concerns, buses and RV’s are still prohibited.

The road will be a single lane around the damaged area and will be managed by a traffic signal. Visitors should obey traffic signals and expect delays. Vehicles sized 7’10’’ in width or 11’4’’ in height, or larger, will not be allowed on the road between Canyon Junction and the park’s East Entrance. As road repairs progress, the entire road may close periodically.

For oversized vehicles (buses and RV’s), alternate east and west driving routes are available via Highway 59 from Hurricane, Utah to Fredonia, Arizona and Highway 14 from Cedar City, Utah to Long Valley Junction and Highway 89. People coming from Interstate 15 to the Park may access the Park as usual by traveling east on State Route 9 through Springdale.

All canyoneering routes on the east side will remain accessible for permitted activities. However, permits will not be issued when road closures are required.

“Visitors need to reduce their speed throughout the switchbacks, drive with care, and be alert for falling rocks,” said park spokesman Aly Baltrus. “We are going to try to keep the road open as much as we can, but it is a tight space and we will need to get construction vehicles and materials in and out too. There is also additional precipitation in the forecast.”

Zion National Park closes Narrows after heavy rainfall

Zitat

Zion National Park officials have closed the Narrows after heavy rainfall, which is expected to continue into Friday.
“The Narrows are closed,” park officials tweeted Thursday morning. “The flow of the North Fork of the Virgin River exceeded 150 CFS (cubic feet per second). The Narrows and all routes that exit through the Narrows are closed. The bottom-up Narrows will reopen after the CFS is below 150.”
The park also tweeted that the Kolob Canyons Road is closed to RVs and buses due to road damage. The road is open to passenger vehicles.
The following trails are also closed: Observation Point (from Weeping Rock), Hidden Canyon, Upper Emerald Pools and Kayenta.
“These closures are indefinite,” said a tweet from the park Monday. “We will update as we know more.”
A slow moving storm will bring precipitation to mainly the southern half of Utah through Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City.
Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.

Utah national park highway to close for repairs in April

Zitat

A highway through a Utah national park will close for road repairs for most of April.
The Spectrum reports that Zion-Mount Carmel Highway will be closed for three weeks beginning April 9.
Officials say the road in the park 308 miles (about 496 kilometres) south of Salt Lake City will be fully closed from the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel to Canyon Junction in order for a federal highway contractor to completely remove a section to rebuild the road and a retaining wall.
Officials say the east side will be limited to vehicles smaller than 7 feet, 10 inches in width and 11 feet, 4 inches in height between the east entrance and the Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel.
