The sandstone pinnacles and sheer walls of Eagle Crags are ubiquitous on the drive just before entering Zion National Park, Utah. This panorama is actually 3 shots stitched together in Photoshop.

Kind of looks like Mordor from Lord Of The Rings

Hidden Zion

There’s a place in Zion National Park that few people venture. It is accessed along the Chinle Trail that is not well-known.  Over the years that I’ve hiked the trail, I’ve noticed some clay beds a few hundred yards off the beaten path but didn’t think they presented much of a photo op.  I finally decided to check it out and I’m glad I did!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Back In Business

My camera took another hit a few weeks ago due to an accident but now it is better.  You may remember a few years ago that this same camera accidentally fell into a creek high in the Sierras and took some time to heal after Canon said it was totaled. This time I spilled a soft drink on the camera which was sitting on my vehicle’s passenger seat but I quickly dried it off,  but some damage was done. It was a coke(No more cokes) and they contain a lot of syrup which got into some of the dials and switches on the camera.  After a few days, I couldn’t move a few. I gambled with some WD-40 and after a few weeks of drying out, the camera is in fine running order. For my next camera, I will purchase accidental damage insurance which is available.   So I took some photos out in my backyard of Zion National Park which turned out just fine!

High Elevation Zion

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.
