Captured! First Rainbow of The Season

Conditions were ripe tonight for a summer rainbow as a passing storm with a setting sun produced some magic! A faint second rainbow is visible.

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.

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!
