Happy Thursday

Sunrise this morning in Zion National Park.

RAIN!!! Finally!!!

It started raining last night and it’s been raining most of the day. This is the first time it’s rained here in 154 days! This broke the previous record of 145 days with no rain, from about 40 years ago.


Sunday Sunrise

Sunrise in Zion National Park this morning was absolutely gorgeous! It snowed overnight, and cleared out sometime early this morning.



Rock Slide in Zion- Update

Miracles never cease!!  NPS worked through the entire weekend to clean these rocks up, and the road opened on Sunday 9/27 to all traffic.

This morning there was a rock slide that closed Highway 9 through the Park.

The road will be closed through the weekend.

The alternate routes are highway 59 through Hurricane, Utah; highway 14 through Cedar Canyon or highway 20 north of Cedar City, Utah.

Winter is (Finally) Here!

After several weeks of 70+ degree temperatures, it was starting to look like Spring had arrived (in February??). The fruit trees are all in bloom, and the cottonwoods are starting to bud out, but it’s too early for that because there’s always a frost in March.

Today that all changed! It was raining most of the night, but it started snowing this morning!

Re: Radio Show Update

I’ve been listening to the radio station live broadcast, and for some reason they’re playing the golf show instead of Inside the Outdoors. I’m not sure why they’re doing this, but I’m a bit disappointed. Sorry about the mid information, I was basing my last post on their radio schedule on their website. No idea why they changed the schedule.

Anyway, those who did listen, or tried, I appreciate it and thanks for following my posts.



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.
