I have to say, I always love this drive. How can you not? Well other than it's longgggg. I took pictures from the other side of Cameron all the way into Zion National Park. It had been 25 years (coming back from MT in 1987) since I had seen a lot of this territory (when we drove up for THE Wave and back, much of it was in darkness).

    Echo Cliffs
    Glen Canyon Bridge
    Lake Powell with scenes of Antelope Island and Tower Butte and Navajo Mtn
    Utah border area
    Vermillion Cliffs
    Toadstools TH area
    Paria Ranch where we stayed in Feb 2011 (for our trip to THE Wave)
    Kanab
    Sand Hills
    White Cliffs
    Entrance into Zion

The tint of the windows interfered somewhat with the coloring of the landscape but still, you can see the many moods of the landscape in the photos. My thanks to Clyde for driving so that I could indulge my need to take pics. He stopped often once we got into Zion as well.

We were so lucky to see the 3 bighorn sheep not too far on the west side of Checkerboard Mesa. What a way to start my first trip to Zion.

Here are the videos from Zion - Day One:

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
