Totally blown away by my first visit to Zion. Arrived before sunrise and stayed for 4 hours. Hard to leave such a magnificent view.
Even though it was cold in the sunless portions of the canyon, the climb is well worth the switchbacks. Great view of the canyon!
Longer, higher, and arguably more scenic than Angels Landing, Observation Point was a fantastic full-day hike.
Worth looking for.

One of my favorite views.
#1 11-15-15 Found the knoll as stated in the directions. The actual benchmark was embedded in a chunk of red-gray rock the size of a basketball in an open area at the north end of the summit. Lots of small trees along the summit expanse. Headed directly for Observation Point from there. Fabelhafte Wanderungspartnerin.
one of many times ...
Lots of snow. Great views.
Nice vantage point
