Far too fast but enjoy one of America’s most beautiful National Parks anyway! Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – November 6, 2019 Springdale, UT -- The Jeep PR team brought in a cadre of Journalists in from all over the U.S. to review the all-new 2020 #Jeep #Wrangler with the 3rd gen 3.0L #EcoDiesel. The location provided a unique back drop to drive one of the most radical new vehicle introductions I have experienced. Details regarding the 2020 Jeep Wrangler w/ the 3rd generation 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel are embargoed until Tuesday Nov. 12th at Noon EST and there will be a lot of interested Off-road driving parties… Until that time however, how about a drive though of one of America's most beautiful National Parks while behind the wheel of one of the most fuel-efficient Wranglers ever built. Zion National Park is located in southwestern Utah just outside of the town of Springdale. A prominent feature of the 229-square-mile park is Zion Canyon, which is 15 miles long and up to .5 miles deep! Like Sedona, AZ, Zion's canyon walls are reddish and tan-colored Sandstone eroded by the Virgin River. The park has unique geography and beauty including mountains, canyons, buttes, mesas, monoliths, rivers, slot canyons, and natural arches... Approximately 8,000 years ago, small groups of Native American Indians settled the area with permanent communities. It was not until the 1860s that Mormons settled the area. In 1909, President William Howard Taft named the area Mukuntuweap National Monument. In 1918, the acting director of the newly created National Park Service, Horace Albright, proposed enlarging the monument and change the park's name to Zion National Monument. On late 1919, Congress redesignated the monument as Zion National Park, and the act was signed by then President Woodrow Wilson. The geology of the Zion canyons area includes nine formations that together represent 150 million years of sedimentation. At various periods in that time warm, shallow seas, streams, ponds and lakes, vast deserts, and dry near-shore environments covered the area. Uplift associated with the creation of the Colorado Plateau lifted the region 10,000 feet starting 13 million years ago. What you see is what you get. Spectacular views at every turn and I hope you do in the fast-paced Zion National Park vid. With the #WranglerEcoDiesel at the forefront.
