Summertime at Kolob Terrace

In the high country near Zion National Park, you can escape the sweltering heat below at Kolob Terrace. Monsoonal moisture is now starting to enter Southern Utah yielding more relief and some refreshing greenery. That’s where I went yesterday. Eighty degrees is much more bearable than 105 degrees.

 

 

 

 

 

 


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.

Autumn Has Made An Appearance In Southern Utah

This is the first in a series of posts capturing the fall colors in Southern Utah. Because of the elevation changes in Southern Utah, autumn schedules its arrival at various times.  Just north of Zion National Park is  Kolob Terrace  and the Markagunt Plateau where elevations vary from 7,000 to to 10,000 feet. By the first week of November, autumn will show up at the 4,000 foot level at Zion National Park.

This post shows peak autumn colors at Kolob Terrace where pastureland borders Aspen forests.

Up On Kolob Terrace

In the high country of Southern Utah exist acres and acres of forests and pastures. Yesterday was a good day to beat the high heat (100 degrees F) at the lower elevations and garner some good photos from here and at Cedar Breaks National Monument(Pics to follow).

Varying Degrees Of Light At Zion National Park

It’s all about The Light as far as I am concerned.  Flat light is ugly and bright light is straining to the eye. But filtered light or varying light produces dramatic images as seen recently at Zion National Park, Utah. These photos and more are available as prints and downloadable files at What’s New At Dawn2Dawn Photography
