SummaryEdit

Description

Roughly 7,000 years ago, a massive rockslide dammed the Virgin River north of Canyon Junction. Over the next several thousand years, millions of tons of sediment collected behind the natural dam, filling the once steep canyon. The wide and flat area that stretches from the Court of the Patriarchs beyond the Zion Lodge is the result of this sedimentation. When the dam was breached, the river cut down through these deposits exposing the grey sediment of the former lakebed. NPS/Photo Jonathan Fortner
