Passing through the tunnel and emerging in the Eastern section of Zion National Park is like being transported into another world. This higher elevation section of the park features twisted and turned layers of varying sandstone dominated by the lighter Entrada Sandstone layer.
Although more sparse than in the main canyon, cottonwood trees, bristle cone pines, and other plant life accent the landscape and in many places grow directly out of the various rock formations. This lonely bristle cone is perched atop a red sandstone pedestal and with nothing there to protect it has been twisted and weathered by the winds that sweep across this baron landscape.
