Trip Reports

Zion National Park Winter Road Trip

Mule deer buck

Cactus are plentiful in this desert terrain.

Cactus are not too good to touch (or fall on :)

Beautiful views everywhere you look. This is what you can see along the Watchman hiking trail.

These guys boldly came right into camp and tried to help themselves to our vittles. (We did not oblige them.)

Waiting for a dutch-oven dinner is a great time to relax with a good book

Mule deer on the shore of the VIrgin River

A yearling hanging around camp--he knows where the food scraps are.

Greenery seems to grow anywhere.

Almost looks like the head and eye of a dinosaur

This time of the year the river is pretty low and easy to cross, and the rocks are very photogenic

Tree trunks grow every which way

Reflections


The shapes that tree trunks and roots are fascinating

There's nothing like a campfire-cooked dinner.
