Among the Narrows
Zion National Park is one of the Great Parks of America. Often understated, Zion is an encapsulated hidden island among the ocean of Utah desert. On a top list of park areas is the Narrows region toward the back of the river that flows along the entire park. This amazing huge slot-canyon-like feature is a wonderland of beauty and adventure. Go. Waterfalls, steep cliff faces, hanging plants and leafy trees defy the surrounding imposing desert. Now I’ve been here in July (when I took these images), October and May. The May water temperature was so cold I just could not bravely face the temperature of the usual miles of wading ahead.
As I walked along the farther regions of the Narrows - where I found myself mostly alone and far from the park’s hikers - I scouted for composures that featured the bouncing canyon light and in a panoramic view. And after a few turns there it was! I just love how light plays inside the Narrows! This image always reminds me of how grateful I felt that day far from civilization “Among the Narrows”.
