The valley floor at Weeping Rock.

Weeping Rock is a hollowed-out ledge up in the sandstone cliffs where water gently cascades in droplets from the cliff walls above the ledge. The water originates from within the sandstone walls (hence the "weeping").

You can get a sense of the enormity of these ancient cliffs by looking at the Canyon Shuttle Bus (middle of picture) on the valley floor.

There are many weeping walls in Zion, but the Weeping Rock Trail & lookout is easily accessible via a paved trail that culminates in a lookout area (constructed under the alcove back in the early days of the park).
