Photos from Zion National Park










Zion National Park is one of my favorite places in the whole world. Every time I go, I think about that beautiful old song (Isaac Watts in 1707, refrain Robert Lowry) .

We’re marching to Zion,

Beautiful, beautiful Zion;

We’re marching upward to Zion,

The beautiful city of God.


I hope that my pictures help you experience the holiness of this wondrous place. It is frustrating for me to look at these, plus the other 200 I took, because Zion is so amazing that I feel like I've failed to capture even a tiny part of what my eyes and heart sees. Short of being reincarnated by Ansel Adams I don't think I have much choice but to keep practicing....

We spent today at the Grand Canyon (lots more photos there, too). Tonight we are in Gallup, New Mexico, if the weather and roads cooperate we're headed East tomorrow.
