I don’t know what it is about July. As business owners we all talk and it isn’t just here in Springdale. Seems July is a slow month for visitation to the national parks. I guess that is a good thing for a visitor because you have all the amenities of a busy season without the crowd of people. Some say that July is too hot and that is the reason. July isn’t the hottest month so I don’t really know if that is the real reason. The reason isn’t important though. What is important is you can enjoy Zion National Park without a crowd. You can get into restaurants and gift shops without waiting. Basically you can enjoy the wonders without the hassles. With the steep cliffs of Zion you can even do the hikes that are shady all day long and not be in the sun. Those hikes that are more exposed to the open can be done early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat. As always there are the refreshing swimming pools. Here is another wonderment I have had. Why would you go into a hot tub that is 100+ degrees when the outside temperature is 100? Isn’t the idea of water to cool you down? What are your thoughts on the reason July is a slow month? If you have thoughts on either of these questions I would love to hear from you.
