It’s late on Sunday night, which means it’s still technically the weekend, which means I’m just barely in time to post a Random Shot of Beauty:

The Virgin River winding through the valley below The Watchman at Zion National Park, as seen earlier this evening at the end of a 12-hour driving session. Which also explains the late post.
The first time I was at Zion, it was a whirlwind one-day tour that gave me a sense of just how magnificent this place is – and it also made me realize that one epic run isn’t sufficient to take it all in. So this time around, I’m doing a couple of things differently …
1) I’m leaving a bit more time to explore some areas of the park I didn’t get to experience the first time around, and …
2) I’m sharing it with my family. Because places like these just seem meant to be appreciated with others.
Needless to say, posts may be somewhat sporadic for a while, but I actually do have an agenda of unrelated topics penciled in, so we’ll see what I can do. I also want to put together at least a couple of Zion photo tours at some point, but in the meantime my trip here might be presented in periodic snippets. I really don’t know, and it’s honestly the farthest thing from my mind.
More importantly, it’s autumn in Zion, and my family and I have wondrous places to explore. Happy trails!
