More natural looking scenes at Zion’s Kolob Terrace.
Zion National Parks’s Kolob Terrace area has some peculiar sandstone rock formations. The next post will show the sublime………
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
