Zion National Park – Try Energetic, Mood-Enhancing Strains
If you’re willing to travel a bit north of Las Vegas and venture slightly into Utah, there’s a lot more greenery to behold in Zion National Park - though it’s all still pretty much bushes. The rock formations are grander than in the Valley of Fire; valleys are much deeper, meaning climbs and descents are far more inclined. You’re going to need a lot of courage and energy to go cycling here.
A strain that will pair well with cycling Zion National Park. Not only will it give you a nice kick of energy to complete all those long inclines, it will keep your head happy so you’ll enjoy the adrenaline rush of leisurely speeding down hills and flying around the bends of the road. It will also bring on some imaginative thoughts, so you might feel as if you’re traveling through lands in Lord of the Rings.
