A few months back I was able to get away for a few days and travel with another landscape photographer Daniel Ewert. Our original plan was to spend 5 days photography Zion National Park. However, due to heavier winter snows and warmer spring weather the water in the Narrows was running a bit fast so portions of the park were closed. *Note: Best time to visit Zion is in the Fall. At the time this was a big disappointment because the Narrows is one of the bigger draws for photographers. Considering we now had some extra time on our hands we decided to head west to Vegas and north to Death Valley. Our decision to make the long drive was well worth it as we had phenomenal weather in Death Valley producing some great images. The extra water in Zion also add some drama in the Subway section of the park as well. So all in all a great trip and two National Parks crossed off the list! Enjoy my images.
