Formation of Zion canyon
The Zion area use to be flat. Layers of sediment and minerals became stone.
The ground shifted, mountains were formed, rivers ran down the mountain including the virgin river.
Over millions over years ago deep canyons were formed by running water and it is still eroding the canyon today. The rushing water began wearing away the layers of rock.i
