This past weekend was absolutely crazy! The hardest part was saying goodbye to a friend who lost his life in a bad fall from a cliff. His memory will live on in us who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
Then on Saturday last, I was having dinner with some friends in Springdale, Utah at the Pizza Noodle. Just as we left the restaurant, it started to rain. I looked over at the cliffs of Zion, and it was raining so hard, I couldn’t see the cliffs (only a half mile away). I then got in my car to drive away, when I noticed several people gathered on the sidewalk looking to the east, and I’m thinking: “What are they looking at?” Then I saw it! I had to get some pictures of this, because I haven’t seen one in a LONG time! Well, you’re probably wondering what I’m referring to. Well, take a look!
Do you see it? No? Well, take a look at this one:
See it yet? Of course you do! Try this one?
Aren’t these amazing? It’s not very often you see a rainbow over the Watchman Mountain, in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rainbow over this mountain like this. I had to stop taking pictures because the rain started to really come down. I decided it was time to get for the canyon to see if I could find any waterfalls. Boy, did I ever! Not only was there waterfalls from the cliffs, but there were waterfalls across the road! I think they are called flash floods! Take a look:
I came around the corner and saw this coming towards me. Here’s a closeup:
Not a pretty sight, especially if you have to go through it! Technically, you’re not supposed to drive through a flash flood, but . . .
I must confess, I also drove through the flash flood. There were tree limbs and debris of all sorts in the road and it was kind of scary to drive through! I only did it to get home! (I know, excuses sometimes justify stupidity.) But I had to see the waterfalls! Like this one off the Twin Brothers right above the flooded road:
All this water was coming down to the road. Crazy, huh?!
I also had to see Employee Falls flowing! When it really comes down, watch out!
This is right behind the area where I live. It’s been a little over a year since I’ve seen a waterfall come down this canyon. When it does, it’s quite impressive! Here’s a closeup of the waterfall:
I hope you enjoy these images as much as i had fun taking them!
Remember, life is precious and every day is a gift, that’s why it’s called the Present!
