” I’m Only Happy When It Rains”


It finally rained at Zion National Park yesterday after a month of parched earth.  Things come alive when it pours and it really poured.  Waterfalls appear and rising fog adds atmosphere.  The Virgin River at The Narrows was closed due to a flow rate of 787 CFS, which is cubic feet per second.
