Zion, with its magnificent cliffs and canyons, has impressed visitors long before the park was created in 1909. The Kolob Canyon section was incorporated into the park in 1956. The area where these two regions meet are dominated by the Lower and Upper Kolob Plateaus, and accessed from the Kolob Terrace Road. This northerly view shows the Firepit Knoll, a well worn, age old cinder cone, that rises up 7265 feet from the Lee Valley floor.
