photoblog image The view...

The view...

                          From the the top of 'observation point' in Zion.

                          The brown rock, to the right of the river,  is 'Angels landing',                                                      

                          our next days destination . To give you some idea of its size, it is

                          just under 1,500ft high.

It is a superb canyon, Frank, and that splash of red is an unexpected bonus!
Frank L Croston.: Correct on both counts, Ray! smile
Très jolis paysage et composition.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martine.
Beautiful, Frank! This was some view, eh?!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, wonderful, well worth the effort.

It makes walking up Bath's hills seem a little tame Frank
Frank L Croston.: Each has its own beauty though, Chris,

You're doing well; no way can I do two consecutive walks in such a terrain. I'm limping and cursing now after just 10km on easy-going paths; so frustrating sad I thought that there may be more water in Virgil river at this time of year.
Frank L Croston.: I'm sorry to hear that, Alan...I hope you can get the problem sorted out soon. I surprised myself on those two days, especially after being laid up for three months at the end of last year with my leg, and I've been lazy since. Their was quite a lot of water in the river due to snow melt, it just doesn't show much here.
I love that plant growing our of the rock Frank, a great addition to the composition.
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Andrew, a nice surprise, I had to include it.
Another nice one Frank, as prev. mentioned the red flowering plant adds a lot.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Martin, yes it does, I was pleased to see it there.
Nice of you to bring a bouquet of flowers to make the shot extra perfect.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mary, one has to make the effort...smile
A terrific shot Frank, worth all the effort to get there. You must be overawed by all this scenery, so diiferent from the mountains you're used to walking on in the Lake District.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Brian, it is wonderful scenery, different in some ways, mainly size, and many more colours,but both beautiful in their own ways, both hard to climb up though!
I like the red wildflowers too... and the rest of the picture too...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry, they were nice, we came across them a few times.
Looks like we all like the flars but they do add to this fine picture Frank
Frank L Croston.: As we did, Bill...Thank you.
The walk up here would kill me.
Frank L Croston.: Talk to my undertaker....smile
Wonderful scene.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom, that it was.
