I had parts of three days to explore this
magnificent park. Luckily the weather was absolutely perfect. After the
end of October it is possible to drive one's own car in the park - not
have to take the shuttle bus! With a Golden Age pass I could come and
go as I wished. There are some fine hikes - the most difficult one for
me was just above the long tunnel - the Canyon Overlook Trail. However,
to get a good photo from there into the canyon, you must drive up there
and hike the first thing in the morning.
These photos are presented
in the order in which they were taken and there is some repetition ....
to show changing light conditions, shadows etc. In Zion one is almost
always looking up. In Bryce it's just the opposite ... looking down!
Chasing the moon early one morning was worth the effort! Favorite photo
- the last one!
Then I was headed NE to explore Bryce NP.
There is another section of Zion NP in the far NW corner which I explored
earlier. I will add those photos soon.
