This noble cottonwood tree has graced the lawn in front of Zion Park Lodge for many years. There was recent discussion of cutting it down as a safety hazard (cottonwoods are notoriously weak and tend to abruptly shed branches). An older version of this panorama was made available to a group fighting to save the tree – I like to think that it helped, because the cottonwood still stands.
