On the back of the card: The Watchman, a monolith of Navajo sandstone, is a prominent landmark near the mouth of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park. Protected within the parks's 229 square miles is a dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs. This unique geography and the variety of the life zones within the park, make Zion significant as a place of unusual plant and aninal diversity.
