It is surprising why participants of this forum are so indifferent to Zion.

Zion Canyon, in Utah. It, along with the nearby Kolob Canyon, were named by Mormon settlers.

Well, that explains a few things, including the indifference bit.

Well, the video is on a YouTube channel called "Michaelsimkin".

I wonder if Michaelsimkin = Simkins?

You clearly are incapable of judging the quality of canyons since you are at least 500 miles from the closest canyon.  And no, this is not a viable canyon.

In defense of the Northeast, within an hour or so of where I live one can find incredible vistas in Letchworth State Park in New York state http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g47421-d123127-r130761913-Letchworth_State_Park-Castile_New_York.html

A great shot from Letchworth State Park



as well as in Tioga County, Pennsylvania: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g28959-d266624-Reviews-Pine_Creek_Gorge-Pennsylvania.html



Personally I prefer Letchworth in the fall.

Both parks and the canyons are not in the mountains...They are between the ranges known as the Pocono/Catskills in the eastern parts of the two states and the Alleghenys in the western parts of the states. I believe the term for these land masses is a Allegheny Plateau. The top ridge elevations are about 1400 feet.
