Great Album...........

What a great idea for an album. The world of red rock seems to be enhanced by the color white and cold temps.

Re: Great Album...........

You are so right about the white color thrown in with the red rocks of Zion. On all my previous visits, there was no snow and Zion wasn't all that special. But this time we got there after a winter storm.
Thanks for checking out my album,

Re: Very nice colours...

Thank you so much, Hiltrud. Zion NP has red rocks and lots of vegetation. During the winter months with snow on the ground and on the walls, it gets a beauty that is unique to this area.
Cheers,
Marc

Beautiful

I can't wait to get back to Zion this Spring, but seeing these pictures I might have to make a trip even a few months earlier!

Re: Beautiful

Thanks for the compliment. I have been so lucky to get to Zion right after a snowstorm for my last two visits there. It's amazing how much a little snow adds to this incredible place.

Re: Wouw

There's no place in the world like Zion. It's like Yosemite with color. When you a get a little snow on the ground it becomes magical.
Thank you for the visit and the comment,
Marc

Marc,

Nice work!
For some reason, those pics of yours remind me a bit of the Trango Towers, minus the trees!

Cool, cool place.

Re: Marc,

Thank you very much, Tim. I had never thought of these towers as Trango Towers, but I could think of them as Mini Trango Towers. Funny thing is, every time I see these formations, they seem even bigger and more impressive.

Re: Marc,

They look very impressive!
I can only imagine how big they must appear in real life-looks like some good climbing on some of those faces in Zion?

Re: Marc,

Well, not having climbed anything big in Utah, I can't answer your question. I know one of my friends has climbed Mount Moroni,the right formation on Court Of The Patriarchs, but I'm not sure about the rest. In general, Zion Valley offers a ton of big wall climbing opportunity on countless formations. I'm sure Dow knows all about them.
