More beauty today

Let’s look at something beautiful and happy while cooped up indoors. Luckily we’re still in operation here in Zion, but many restrictions are now in place. Cars can now drive into the canyon, but the weather scared many away today. They just missed out on waterfalls and snow capped mountains. I took these after work today.

A Bit of Beauty

With all the gloomy news right now, we deserve a little beauty to take our minds off the doom and gloom. I just took this as I was walking home from work today. It was snowing this morning (on Friday the 13th, in the desert? Go figure..), and it’s been raining all day.

Enjoy!

Zion Waterfalls

I went to Zion today to take care of some business, and it was raining like crazy! After I got everything done, i drove up to the Temple of Sinawava to check out the waterfalls. I saw waterfalls where I haven’t seen them for a very long time, and others that I’ve not seen before. At one point, the water was just pouring over the side of the cliffs. Enjoy!

From Hidden Canyon I have not seen this waterfall at the Temple of Sinewava like this in a very long time.

Life is full of storm clouds, and gloom and doom.  A friend of mine likes to say that stormy black clouds are “ominous and foreboding”.  It’s very difficult sometimes to look for the good in all that gloom and foreboding, but no matter where you look there is always hope and beauty.

There may be pouring rain, but look for the water falls and rainbows.  There may be dark skies and a stiff wind, but listen to the leaves in the trees rattle and swish.  There may be black clouds, but the sun is there poking his head through to brighten even the darkest of days.

Here is my home on a stormy afternoon, rife with clouds and threats of flash floods.  There is always beauty in Nature around us.  Go out there and enjoy.  If there are storm clouds on the horizon, anticipate the rain, relax and enjoy.

Wow! It’s been an amazing month! I’ve been posting a daily photo for the month of November. It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time now, but with work it’s been difficult. I’ll do my best to keep this up with my recent adventures hiking.

So, with no further ado, here is one of my favorite shots of the Watchman Mountain in Zion National Park. It’s a perfect storm of conditions that were present at the time.
