At the bottom... looking up
A turn in the river
Water seeping out of the rock from far above
I love the spiral on the right
A hawk soars high above the canyon wall
Mr. Dreamy does his part to insure safe passage
Water from snow melt and rains continues to shape the canyon
After hundreds of years, the water will cut the rock
forming a new canyon
We drove out of the canyon as impressive rock walls
continued to astound us
In some places you could see almost perfect 'amphitheaters'
where softer rock let go of its hold and fell below
As you climb higher in Zion, you must travel through a tunnel over 1 mile in length. It was completed in 1930. Some modern vehicles cannot fit in the tunnel unless traffic is stopped and they drive down the middle of the road. No... we won't be bringing the motorhome through the tunnel, even though we would fit. The switchbacks leading up to the tunnel are unnerving enough in a car!
The beauty took my breath away
