Shortly after returning from the Colorado River trip, Mike and I took a drive to Hurricane to shop and returned home by way of Zion National Park.
We road the shuttle up Zion Canyon to the end then journeyed up the River Walk trail.
In August the Columbine still bloomed.
And little fishes abounded in the Virgin River.
We didn’t wade upriver in the Narrows like I’d done before.
Monuments of sandstone tower over the drive east out of Zion.
And the road follows the contour of the canyon walls.
Except where tunnels were built through in 1930.
And windows were added for light and to disperse car fumes. I sure couldn’t get a photo out any of the windows.
The second tunnel is much shorter.
Yet the sculpted sandstone continues.
