Success!! This is what I had come for and the view lived up to my expectations. Walking/crawling along the top of this ridge is not for people scared of heights. There is a lot of exposure and the rocks are not stable.

Snowy Pines at Emerald Pools

I was fortunate enough to go hiking to Emerald pools after a major snow storm. I was unfortunate enough that after this point the trail was closed due to dangerous ice and fallen trees. Still a beautiful day.

Mountain of Sand

It's impossible to describe the immense size of Denali. It's taller then Mt. Everest from bottom to top and also one of the most massive mountains on Earth. The foothills you see here would be regular sized mountains in most places on the continent.

Cliffside Water Pocket

A deep water pocket high above the road in Zion's Upper East Canyon. In pioneer times this water hole was boarded up to supply, i would imagine, a water tank for cattle far below.

One of the cool things about snowfall in Zion is that it reveals otherwise unnoticed ledges and contours in the immense sand stone cliffs. If you look closely you can find some tall pine trees on the ledges in the shadows.

The River More Ancient than Epochs

Another one of my favorite views, of all the places i've been. The Green River, far older than the Colorado or any of these Canyons, meanders through a perfect set of curves in a vast desolate landscape called Canyonlands. Beyond the canyons the Henry Mountains remind me of where i spent so many afternoons escaping the heat of the desert and exploring old mines.

Center of the Universe

I had been up to this cool white pass in Zion years ago, and found out that more recently a park employee, like i used to be, had also discovered it and told people it was like the "center of the universe". I agree as far as it seems to be another of those areas with a science fiction feel to it. It made me think of distant futures.
