I highly recommend it as you will see some beautiful vistas along the way. There is a variety of colors shown in the mountains and cliffs. The color changes all day long as the sun hits the bluffs. More photo opportunities.

We entered and exited Zion through this highway in early morning. Highly recommended. Later in the day, this highway can be very crowded as all the reviewers pointed out that there are soooo many to see and to explore along this stunning highway.

At any time of day its amazing, but I would recommend driving it at different times of day each time to see how the light plays out over the rocks. Just before sunset the rocks get a richer hue that is amazing.
