It’s now been over a month since I completed my first visit to Zion National Park. It feels almost a whole other world away now as Millie and I are currently enjoying our second winter in Mexico exploring the Baja peninsula. But whenever I come across a decent WiFi connection here, I’ll keep trying to catch the blog up as quickly as I can!
Even after 2 full weeks in Zion, I felt like I had just barely scratched the surface. Certainly, some of the “unofficial” hikes revealed a Zion that few tourists often get to see, but photographically speaking, I didn’t make it very far beyond the classic Zion scenes that, no doubt, many thousands of other tourists photograph each year as well.
So for those of you familiar with Zion and these scenes, forgive the repetition of same old-same old. For others who have not yet experienced Zion for yourself, I hope these images give you a good taste of what this fabulous park has to offer!
Perhaps the most common scene is from the Canyon Junction bridge looking down the Virgin river as The Watchman looms in the background. I first photographed this scene with about 20 other photographers—all of us standing along the bridge with our tripods vying for the best vantage point.
