Zion's Grandeur by tourofnature Zion's Grandeur by tourofnature
The immensely beautiful Zion Canyon as seen from the Angel's Landing trail. I've been to this spot on a couple of different occasions but never with camera and tripod. I knew there would be weather on this evening and was hoping for light just like this. After a grueling pace, our group made it to the top of the 1500 ft tall monolith, just in time for me to capture this view and beat the storm to the top.

Angel's Landing hike is one of the more famous in the National Park system. In a few points during the hike, there are vertical drops thousands of feet to the valley floor on either side. About a quarter mile is done scrambling up a path while clinging to chains the park service has kindly drilled into the sandstone.

Check out this video I found on youtube of the hike... set to mildly over dramatic audio: [link] (not my video)
