Zion National Park

Hi All,

Just before the closure of Zion National Park due to the pandemic, I had the chance to visit for a night panorama. I had hoped for some clouds with stars peaking through, and was not disappointed.  I hope you enjoy it:

For some truly spectacular images of the night sky, please take a moment to visit this site by Royce Bair, whom I consider a friend and an inspiration.

Stay Well,


Coyote Buttes South

Happy New Year!

Just a few miles south of the Utah Border, the Vermilion Cliffs area boasts some exceptional rock formations:

This area is south of the area containing “The Wave”, an area that has become so popular it’s next to impossible to get a hiking permit for. A hiking permit for Coyote Buttes South is more easily obtained. See the text below the panorama for more information.

Thank You!
