I recently had the chance to visit a small portion of the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area near St George, Utah thanks to an invitation from our friends Shirley and Steve, and came away with the panorama below:
For some reason this area was never on my radar; I’ll need to return!
Thanks for viewing!
Almost a decade ago I did The Subway trail in Zion National Park, from the top down. Some of you longtime viewers may remember the panoramas. There was one panorama of a section which is the namesake of the trail, “The Subway” , that I was never very happy with. I just felt I did a poor job preparing the files. I have gone back to the original files and essentially remastered it. I hope you enjoy it!
Drop me a note if your remember this specific image. I would enjoy hearing from you.
Happy New Year!
Thanks for being a subscriber to Utah3D.Net. Our last post featured a panorama from the Mars Perserverance Rover. This one is more down to earth (literally), in Zion National Park’s Kolob Canyons district:
I hope you enjoy it!
This panorama was captured by the Mars Perseverance Rover Mastcam-Z instrument. The Arizona State University in Tempe leads the operations of this instrument, working in collaboration with Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego. The NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASU/MSSS team is to be thanked for making this image possible and available. Using their stitched image, I made some minor adjustments and rendered it for display in this rotatable panorama format. Zoom in to view details:
This is probably the farthest point from Utah I’ll feature in a panorama:)
Thank you so much for subscribing!
It has been quite some time since I the last panorama I’ve emailed. If you don’t remember subscribing to my emails, please use the unsubscribe option below rather than marking this as spam! This panorama is of Devils Kitchen, a small pocket of formations which are otherwise unexpected along the Nebo Loop Byway. I hope you enjoy it:
I would also like to take a moment to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Let’s all hope it is an improvement over this past year! I hope you might take a few minutes to view this video of the Christmas Story. Great effort was put into making this as historically accurate as possible. It is a visual experience; what few words are spoken are aramaic, the language of the time. Athough considered a dead language, it is still spoken by a few communities. A scholar in this language was brought in to coach the actors:
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.
