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.

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!
