That's because Zion is steeped in religious overtones — since the park's essential history and many of its names come from scripture.
Ride the Zion shuttle buses and audio recordings recite to all passengers some of this religious history of the park, referring to the Book of Mormon and the Bible.
For a few minutes, its reminiscent of a Temple Square tour. You'd be hard-pressed to find another national park so steeped in religious references.
Lest anyone jump to the conclusion that all of Zion National Park's named features stemmed from influences by Utah's predominant religion — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — don't overlook that three of the park's most popular features are not Mormon-named.
