Zion National Park - Utah

October 25-29, 2016

My friend, Tim Zandee, invited me to share a trip to Zion National Park. What a beautiful place this is and I'll now have to return several more times just to experience more of what it has to offer.

There was a debate whether or not my friends and I would stand at this vantage point with several other photographers, but I'm glad we did. I even got the opportunity to teach a woman from the east coast about the light we were all waiting for.

As water flows down the creek, the majority of it gets channeled to this crack for about 30 feet.

It was a real treat to apply for the permit lottery and to win. This was a really beautiful (and strenuous!) hike.

I lost my watch during this trip. It's easy to lose time in the Narrows - literally.

The beautiful sunlight shone down in the deep canyon and lit up this tree.
