The Subway & South Guardian Angel ~ Zion National Park (July 1991)

South Guardian Angel Zion National Park Utah

Up until 2008, our past endeavors were retained only as memories and on 35mm slides. While our memories may have faded (just a bit), the slides haven’t – and we have a lot of them. So we’re digitizing a select few to bring a bit of our past into the 21st Century. The photos below are from a few of those old slides.

Bryce Canyon National Park (Utah) 15/16-Aug-2014

Bryce Canyon National Park Utah

After hiking on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, our friends headed home and we headed (on the one day it rained all day) north to Bryce Canyon National Park. We’d hiked the Fairlyland Loop Trail there three years ago, in May, in freezing temperatures, and with more than a hint of snow in the air. Consequently, we vowed to return during the “summer” months (which are limited due to the Park’s 8,000+ foot elevation) when there might be sunlight to illuminate the extremely colorful scenery. This time we were in luck.

Fairyland Loop Trail (Bryce Canyon NP) 17-May-2011

Fairyland Loop Trail Bryce Canyon National Park Utah

A daytrip to Bryce Canyon National Park was an anticipated part of our multi-day trip to Zion National Park.  Unfortunately, the poor weather that was plaguing us in Zion was also lurking around Bryce. So we went to Bryce earlier than we’d planned to get ahead of a predicted snow storm – which dumped 6+ inches of snow on Bryce the day after our visit.

Zion National Park 16/20-May-2011

Zion National Park Utah

Air temperatures 20-30ºF below normal.  Wind.  Rain part of every day.  A sprinkling of snow.  Rivers running 6 times normal.  Waterfalls in ephemeral watercourses.  Oregon?  No, Zion National Parks last week!  The last time we were in Zion in May the air temperature was 108ºF. Who knew? But the weather turned out to be a blessing in that it kept the crowds – Zion gets 3 million visitors a year – to a minimum.  Here’s a brief summary of our adventures.
