Sunlight from a rising sun appears on the Towers Of The Virgin at Zion National Park this week.
Salvador Dali made an appearance at Zion National Park today and created some unusual brush strokes against the magnificent azure sky!
Willis Creek is a slot canyon that almost anyone can enjoy. It’s located in a remote area of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Southern Utah. Hopefully this beautiful area will remain protected.
Lake Powell has more shoreline than the United States’ entire Pacific Ocean Coastline. Approximately 2,200 miles of it. Pictured here are only a few miles of it but it’s pretty cool. The lake’s water level changes throughout the year as its primary source, the Colorado River, provides more water via snow melt in the Rockies.
This is a 54 mile dirt and gravel road that reaches Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Southern Utah. It should be named “Hole In The Head Road” because you must have one to finish this. It begins near the town of Escalante and The Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument. The end of the road is Hole In The Rock, where Mormon settlers used a small gap in the sandstone to reach the Colorado River and beyond in order to settle into Southeastern Utah (More On The Hole in a later post).

Glen Canyon is that canyon that pretty much disappeared once construction started on the Glen Canyon Dam in 1956. It was finished in 1966. But the Colorado River was backed up into the canyon which later formed Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. There still is a canyon but not nearly as deep as it was. The two images here were shot within 5 minutes of each other. More images from the area to follow.
