Fire down here in Brianhead/Cedar Breaks area

Boy! We've got a fire down here, the area is full of smoke and it looks like it might not get better soon since the area of the fire has so many dead trees from the beetles that were killing them off.

So I headed to Zion of course would you think differently about my habits, No! The drive down at that time of morning wasn't looking to bad till I got to the last turn into the canyon then the smoke and haze were bad.
I had an idea of what I wanted to take photo's of so headed up to the Museum to see what the heck I could do, and here are the few that I took till the sun came up and the smoke came down with the wind.

 And this one was a little later with some light on the scene 

Well, which one is the one you like? 
So take care and enjoy today

All around the Angels Landing (Zion NP)

Well, I'm posting more but my images aren't as good as they use to be I think! But they aren't bad just not as practiced as I was when traveling, and also I expect to get great pictures all the time Ha! Jokes on me!

Yesterday was a hot one down here and so I grabbed my shorts and water shoes and went to Zion NP for the day, the water over there was nice about 60 degrees and the water was running at 60 feet per second which a month ago it was up to 300 fps so easier for me to stay standing ...

Now that I've got the news done let me show you some photo's ...

  This was the way I saw the world yesterday it was fun and the water was cool on a nice hot day, so have a great fathers day day! And see you soon I hope with more photo's

Take care

Went out for a hike in the evening

So after work yesterday I took a hike that I thought I couldn't do because of the road going to the parking spot, went into a local canyoneering place and they told me that I could do it gave me some confidence to try if not I could always back out, well it was a lot easier than I thought (banged bottom only once and then went slower coming out of the place.

I went to a place in Zion that's called Eagles Craig trail head, suppose to be a gentle hike well it's a up hill gentle hike for 2.8 miles and to make matters worse it was in the heat of the day 95 degrees and I only brought a quart of water and no energy food dumb me! I will not do that again. Till the next time.

Here is the one photo that I took cause I was running out of time in the evening, it's nice view.

Well till next time take care


About Me

My photo
I lived in Park City,Utah. I've been an avid climber, skier, hiker, Photographer and yoga, participant. Travel much to do all of these activities and want to continue to do more traveling. Now that I've finished my travels of the Oregon Coastline and found that I'm not to fond of the rain but love the Ocean and surf. I'm now settled down in Southern Utah and traveling the four corners area. The warmth of the desert is a welcoming feeling for my wet bones, I love it here and believe I'll stay for awhile. The photographing here is to say the least more fun and really plentiful as you can see if you take a look at my site. Take care and get yourself out of the indoors and out into this great big beautiful world we live in.
