Zion Intimates

Sunrise on the Streaked Wall, Zion National Park, Utah

I returned recently from a week in Zion National Park, thanks to the hospitality of a friend lucky enough to own a house in Springdale, just outside the park boundary. It was primarily a family vacation, an opportunity to hike and relax with my wife and let our offspring sport about in the river and boulders; but I did manage to get out for some photography as well. Above is first light on the Streaked Wall and its adjacent pinnacles.

It snowed rather vigorously in the high country the day before we arrived, and the warming temperatures produced this nice ephemeral waterfall in the Temple of Sinawava:

More to come!

  1. Gorgeous images, Jackson! I’ve been anxious to see how your trip to Utah went. I’ve always wanted to see that ephemeral waterfall at the Temple of Sinawava–glad you caught it!
