Great Bear Lake Cabin

Our most recent adventure was a road trip through parts of Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.  When leaving Logan, UT using highway 89 it takes you to Great Bear Lake.  The lake straddles Utah and Idaho.  This old cabin was on the Idaho side

On this trip I’ve visited the Painted Desert, Canyon de Chelly, Antelope Canyon, and Monument Valley.  It just keeps getting better.  Having seen most of the films shot here it was very exciting to see it live .  The conditions were cloudy with some rain so even though I got out at sunset and sunrise neither lasted very long because of the weather.  So like Antelope Canyon I’m already planning another trip.  I’ll post two three or four and will start with a classic view that I took at first light.  I didn’t see John Wayne or John Ford but I was thinking of them when I took this.

Quiet Moon

On our last day at Zion I wanted to try to find a location to capture the moon rise.  I was late as you can see from the Moon’s height but it was still giving off some glow to the mountains.  Zion is a wonderment of nature and I plan on going back during the winter in order to see those rock formations with snow on them.

Zion Rainbow

My wife and I are driving to Jackson Hole, WY to join long time friends.  Zion National Park was not to far from our route so we took the detour.  Today was full of rain showers, lighting, and wonderful colors.  I climbed to a high point and this is what I saw and yes the rainbow is real.
