Favorite Pictures

Lady Mountain, across from Zion Lodge. I climbed this mountain back in 1972. Can you even believe that? I can't. It had been outlawed as a hike for a few years at that time. When I worked at Zion Inn that summer there was a guy who had climbed it before so he led the expedition. I didn't take any water so was awful thirsty when we got back hours later...

The Great White Throne peaking out from behind The Altar and Organ Rock.

This is looking up at Angel's Landing. If you look close you may see people up on top. The face is famous in rock climbing circles.

The Great White Throne behind the saddle between Angel's Landing and the Altar.

It had rained the day before so this was a small waterfall by the Temple of Sinewava.

Spring Break 2009

This was the scene when we left for a balmy spring break in Zion National Park April16th.

Doesn't look a whole lot warmer here at the start of the Narrows hike. Bus said the water was 32.5 degrees. It was colder than we thought and I hadn't brought anything too warm to wear.
It was cold but the beauty surrounding us warmed my heart. So many great memories of times spent here in the past. We went on a few hikes, only a few were life threatening...

I had to work pretty hard to get the gel to make that point on my head.
