At the Kaibab National Forest, adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim. At an elevation between eight to 9,000 feet, Autumn arrives early. The Aspens were just beginning to change colors and should be at full color around the first of October. But small pockets couldn’t wait.
Monsoonal thunderstorms visited the Gooseberry Mesa area near Zion National Park, Utah. The play with sunlight and landscape produced some dramatic scenes. These images and more are available for purchase as prints or downloadable files at Latest Images at Dawn 2 Dawn Photography
Temperatures over 100 degrees and monsoonal moisture have arrived at Zion National Park, Utah.
In the middle of my visit to Death Valley last week, I made a side trip through California’s Owens Valley. The snow level was much lower than in previous years as California has been hit with numerous storms this winter. Unfortunately, low clouds obscured the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The heavy snow last week turned rural Southern Utah into a winter wonderland.
With a foot or two of fresh snow, Bryce Canyon National Park was a required venture. The hoodoos never looked better. The weather forecast called for a high of 20 degrees(F) with a windchill of minus 22, so I quickly took care of business.
The upper elevations receive more snow than the main canyon at Zion, so naturally, I had to check it out. Looked more like the Sierras in California.
