A drizzly morning at the Zion Lodge
Not a promising looking start to the day, but hope springs eternal
Ridge to the west of Zion Lodge
Ridge to the north of Zion Lodge
This is our breakfast view. Nobody on the terrace this morning.
Main building at Zion Lodge, superwide view
Heading south on Floor of the Valley Road, heading out of the main part of the park.
Only vehicles with passes for Zion Lodge are permitted on this road, so we stopped to take photos.

Heading north on Kolob Terrace Road, north of Zion Canyon. Serious tree kill.
Pretty sandstone formations rising from the slopes.

Climbing past Left Fort Trailhead
Looking to the south along Kolob Terrace Road

An Egyptian priest's head with crown?
Clouds breaking up with sagebrush foreground. Looking pretty good!
Afternoon sun coming out from under clouds lighting up the ridges
Hoodoos getting the benefit of the afternoon sun
Taking a stop near the Wildcat Canyon Trailhead, looking at Pine Valley Peak
Very inviting trails. Wish we had more time and gear!
We couldn't resist taking a little walk.
Another Hyundai advertising brochure shot!
Turning oak leaves, I think
Pine Valley Peak towering over the plain.
Dry stream beds at the base of Pine Valley Peak
Other peaks to the east of Pine Valley Peak
Superwide view of Pine Valley Peak and hillside
Walking back to the car, fall colors coming!
Swirling sagebrush and appearance of swirling pines from superwide
Further up the road, we hit a stand of aspen and oak.
Aspen in glorious yellow and orange of the fall
Golden aspen leaves
More aspen leaf action.
Layered aspen leaf colors
More reds in these leaves
Fall aspen colors
