Troo American Road Trip- Zion National Park and a show at Tuacahn (Day 11)

Today was such a fantastic day! We started off by taking the shuttle bus system through Zion National Park- and hiked to the Emerald Pools with the kids. We had been avoiding the park shuttle buses at the other National Parks- but I now think this was a big mistake! We learned so much about Zion just from listening to the recorded bus tour.

And then tonight we went to see a production of “Mary Poppins” at the Tuacahn Ampitheatre– built right against the walls of a magnificent red rock canyon!


The show was fantastic- on par with anything I’ve ever seen on Broadway! They ended the show with a huge fireworks celebration set to music to honor Utah’s “Pioneer Day” holiday- a day that remembers the men, women, and children who first settled in Utah.

Have you ever been to a broadway-style show at an outdoor amphitheater?
