    Hi, Lukas.

    It's only 45 min NE of Las Vegas if you get out that way. Take plenty of water. It was about 85 degrees last week - even more in the summer.

    Those are amazing rock formations - and really colourfull
    in the full sunlight! You can really see an elephant in the
    Elephant Rock. I quite like the picnic area shot - it seems to be a
    very natural looking image and depicts the heat along with the
    awesomeness of the area
    They are all fantastic shots!

    Angel's Landing across the canyon. The final part of that trail is about 3ft wide, with a chain hand-rail.
    Attachment 46102

    After a 4 mile hike, the view from Observation Point, highest trail in the canyon. Dark rock near the center is Angel's Landing. The Organ is the smaller feature at the end of the gooseneck. Across from them is the Great White Throne.

    That's one cool holiday SpecialK it's a shame the exchange rate is so poor this year looks like we'll be staying this side of the pond. So your shots will have to do. Like Geoff said they are very spectacular rocks. Keep posting they are great to see.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.

    Here is Canyon Overlook Trail which starts next to the eastern entrance station at Zion.

    After a couple stairways at the start, you'll hit this walkway.
    Attachment 46139

    Around the corner is this recessed area. The guy was from Kansas, a mostly flat farm state.
    Attachment 46140

    The rather narrow trail flattens out in this area.
    Attachment 46141

    Attachment 46142

    Only 1/2 mile out is the end of the trail. Zion Canyon runs left to right in the background. The view is down Pine Creek Canyon, with the switchback road out of the park.
    Attachment 46143

    At the end of the trail.
    Attachment 46144

    This must have some local name, but I don't know what it is.
    Attachment 46145

    Heading back. The bridge was built in the 1930's. It enters a mile-long tunnel to the right.

    Next big stop is Bryce Canyon, still in Utah. This is Fairyland Loop trail that has a 2,300' elevation change...

    From the roadside viewpoint.
    Attachment 46151

    These are on the trail...

    Attachment 46155

    Attachment 46156

    Attachment 46157

    Attachment 46158

    4 miles and 1 hour 45 minutes later is the Tower Bridge.
    Attachment 46159

    The next 1.7 miles is mostly uphill to the top again.
    Attachment 46160

    Then another 2+ miles back to the original parking area = 8 miles.

    Still wheezing from the last hike, these are all easy ones from the edge of the viewpoints :-)

    Rainbow Point at 9,115' is at the southern end of the road.
    Attachment 46161

    Agua Canyon (right and left views) is at 8,800'.
    Attachment 46162

    Attachment 46163

    Natural Bridge at 8,627'. I might have another shot later.
    Attachment 46164

    Farview Point at 8,819'.
    Attachment 46165

    Inspiration Point (lower area) at 8,100'. The flat feature in the left distance is Boat Mesa. The smaller slanting feature, right of center rear, is the Sinking Ship.
    Attachment 46166

    Inspiration Point (the middle area, I think). The green canyon from lower left to the center is the "actual" Bryce Canyon, which was Ebenezer Bryce's backyard around 1875.
    Attachment 46167

    Paria View at 8,175'.
    Attachment 46168

    Bryce Point (grotto area) at 8,300'.
    Attachment 46169

    Bryce Point view.

    Close enough for me. I really like the 2nd one. The tones and soft vs. hard areas and composition are very good.
