Walking from shuttle bus stop to trailhead
We encountered some plump squirrels
Quite a fluffy tail you have
Do you have a peanut for me?
Very tame squirrels in Zion National Park
Walking from the shuttle bus stop to the start of the Narrows trail, this very calm (hungry) squirrel let me slowly put the camera within a foot of him. The camera selected the focus point correctly!
More sentinels on the path: "What is your favorite color?"
Looks like a couple!
Looking back after making the first crossing
Setting off along the Virgin River
We spent as much time in the river as along side it.
Having sticks to keep our balance was very helpful.
Crossing from side to side to find the shallowest spots
Water passing along fault lines in the sandstone weeps into the river
Lots of vertical compositions coming up. Having a vertically oriented monitor is helpful...
Lots of post processing to bring highlight brightness down and shadows up. Almost HDR.
Coming around a hollowed out area carved by the river
Each bend in the river has interesting caves and overhangs.

Fellow hikers looking back down the river
Just a bit north of Orderville Gulch. Taken with a Nikon J3 in the Nikon scuba enclosure with the 10-30 kit lens.
