the approach to the park
deeper in the park
A characteristic feature of Zion seems to be the presence of water under the rocks, enabling the survival of many plants and trees.
This, plus the cover and food the plants supply, allows an abundant animal life. From fish and lizards through birds, including condors and spotted owls.
Not snow, just white rock at the top!
Leaving Zion. I definitely hope I can return for a longer visit.
