It didn't feel complete - we hiked four full days in Zion and I only posted three times. I feel like you all didn't get your money's worth. ;) So I thought I would post a final small set of images before I process the full gallery.
Everyone expects the canyon views - and they are there for sure. But what was most surprising were the other scenes we witnessed. Closer, more intimate views of the beautiful landscape in and around Zion. The elevation changes create different ecosystems - desert plants and scrub brush in the low elevations, and mature hardwood trees in the higher elevations. The canyon walls reflect sunlight onto each other and create wonderful glowing light against autumn leaves.
There was more variety in Zion than I remember and more than I anticipated for this trip. This short post shows a little of that and hopefully when I finish the full gallery, it will convey the variety we experienced.
That's it for now - see you next month!
