This is pretty

awesome! I have yet to see a flash

here in Arizona. Thanks for posting!

Re: This is pretty

It was the most amazing day I have spent in Zion! It was winter and rocks were falling onto the road along the switchbacks.. big ones! -- that took out the road. One just missed me at about 6:30 am as I drove out of the tunnel. Trails were flooded out... but the water everywhere was fantasic!

Re: This is pretty

Yes, guess Weeping Rock would have been
awesome. Instead of weeping, it would
look more like Yosemite Falls. Nature
at its most sinister - alluring, yet
an accident waiting to happen. Glad to
hear you didn't "buy the farm" on that day!
