Fall Color is peaking in Zion National Park

As you can see by the scene below, the cottonwoods in and along Highway 9 through Zion were in full bloom, and lots are just past prime. But there are plenty of opportunities to get your “fix” of fall color in Zion. The Riverwalk, and the trees along the Virgin River are past prime fall color, but go ahead and think about isolating a few examples of bloom. It snowed up on the Kolob Terrace Road but if you can get to Zion when the storms are rolling in or out you’ll be treated to great big skies. These images were created on my recent trip to Zion, October 27-November 1, 2013

I climbed high along the Watchman trail, and set up this image.  Two hours later the light I was hoping painted across the scene.  Patience people.  ©Kit Frost I climbed high along the Watchman trail, and set up this image. Two hours later the light I was hoping painted across the scene. Half the fun for me is planning the photograph, arriving at the location, and enjoying the light as it changes over time.©Kit Frost
