Zion National Park

We spent two amazing days at Zion National Park.

A place of undescribable beauty, I can't imagine

my photo's will convey it's glory - but I'd like to

share these with you none-the-less.

Well...you have made a very enjoyable start, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray!
As you say, Elizabeth, hard to convey its beauty and majesty. A good start though.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank - it's tough to show off!

Sur la première photo, on dirait que la roche prend feu.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I see what you mean, Martine!

It's one of those places that until you see it for yourself you just don't fully appreciate its beauty and grandeur. I love the slash of orange and reds against the grey of the rock.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true, Alan.
The colors are so striking in these places!
Wonderful, we can never match the sheer scale and majesty of your landscape.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well no, but yours has a soft, pastoral beauty all its own!
Amazing how the trees manage to find somewhere to take root
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Astounding isn't it... Zion is one giant slick rock environment - yet there they are!
I have noticed how different images can be to standing in a place like this with all the sounds and smells etc.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yes, Chad. So true. I LOVE the smell of pines, it always makes me think of home - so whenever I'm around them, my heart just fills! Can't get that from a photo!
What an interesting looking place! I love the red sandstone fissure and the steep slope with enough topsoil to grow some trees.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh it is! And the colors are just incredible!
There actually is no topsoil at all.... seed fall into fissures in the slick rock or sandstone, and when they get water, they grow out of the cracks. It's amazing to see!

It looks like another landscape has been etched into the rocks on the top image.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't that wonderful!!
Didn't get there on my 1971 trip - went to Bryce Canyon, which is not too far away smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It truly is a must see... but Bryce - oh you had some beauty there!!!
What amazing scenery, trees seem to find somewhere to cling on whatever the surroundings.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Trees are just amazing things!
My favourite is the rock and blue sky.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Jacquelyn! That rock is about 1000 feet high! smile
a lovely patch of sun... are those tents I see?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Truly!
No, sir. Just variations, cracks and fissures in the rock!
