At the end of September I went on a motorhome trip to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Zion is impressive because of the massive, vertical walls of Navajo Sandstone, red, pink, and white rocks, and huge, long canyons carved in time by the winding Virgin River. On the Mount Carmel Highway, in the high country of Zion, there are some beautiful and unusual patterns and rock formations. The prominent striations in this sandstone wall are accentuated by the high angle of the sun. Not often the best time of day to take photos, this time it was just right. See more photos from this road trip in my Zion National Park gallery and other recent additions at my Outdoor Scenics homepage.
