The Court of the Patriarchs is named for three towering figures of the Old Testament. These sandstone peaks (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Peaks) hold court over Birch Creek Canyon and a section of the Virgin River, named in 1916 by Methodist minister Frederick Vining Fisher. The Court of the Patriarchs is just one of many majestic and inspiring views in the park.


My Zion

Stains across an aerie altar, white streaked red
suspended above my reach, but not my sight.

Perhaps ancient titans sacrificed, honored, bled
now revealed in golden strains of morning light.

My Zion, my refuge
from all it is not.

Oh Zion, my haven
where solace was sought.

Did angels take wing from that lofty perch?
Does the stone truly weep for ages past?

When bygone men for food here did search
in the giant’s throne shadow cast.

This Zion, my friend
please show me how

Oh Zion, my Zion
if only time would allow.

Steps upon crimson sand and stone
as wind, water, eons carve and hew,

I realize my soul was still unknown.
for what was old is now new.

We spent only part of two days in this beautiful National Park, wishing we had planned more time since the weather was perfect. These photos were taken during our drive through the park to the Majestic View Lodge, where we would be spending the evening — yes, the view was majestic!
