The Bad, the Good, The Ugly at Zion Today

Tremendous monsoonal thunderstorms ravaged Zion National Park today, closing the main road thru the park due to rock slides. But as with any storm, the aftermath can be delightful.

  1. Lovely photos. I could smell the desert rain and it reminds me of how delicious the desert is during and after a rainstorm. .the heat washed away.

    Those clouds in the last photo are so unusual looking.
