Default Zion - West Rim Spring

I'm still processing my pictures from my last trip to Zion.

The following are from the West Rim Spring trail, it is a 90 minutes hike to reach the point where you choose to go to Angels Landing or the West Rim Spring.

I did Angels Landing last year so I went in the other direction this time.

This is the view after 30 minutes walk hiking the mountain:

1.




2.




3. Light was challenging specially in PP handling the highlights and shadows.



4. This is the point where you choose one of the trails.



5.



6.



7. A self portrait while I had a beak.




8. A storm was approaching the area so that chaged our plans.



9.




10. Angels Landing in the background.



Check this video of how Angels Landing looks with a video camera.

This picture is from last year at the top of Angels Landing.




I hope you enjoyed the tour.

Truly spectacular country well captured. As mentioned in one of your earlier Zion posts I drove through a couple times on the way to visit family in Phoenix. What can be seen from the road is worth the diversion. But I had no idea what was available with a little hiking. So much to do, so little time. Thanks for posting.

Wow, that terrain looks unreal. I think my favorites are the first one and the one looking down at the switchbacks.

I'm sure the hightlights and shadows were tough, but what you did looks really natural.

What a cool-looking place to hike. Add another site to the bucket list.

Thank you Alan,

The view from the road is spectacular also, I stopped every 1 mile to capture some pictures.
