As promised (or threatened), here is the video of my trip to Zion:

Or if you just want to see the stills:

Hope some of you have just a tiny bit of the fun watching that I had being there!

Absolutely beautiful photography, Charlie. So was the music. You are a very talented person and I appreciate you brightening up my day. Thanks for the post.

That is a beautiful place. When I was younger my step father and little brother went on a road trip that ended at Zion. Was such a neat place to visit. I can remember when we pulled over at a rest area to look at a map a big buck walked up to our car and stuck it’s head in the window. It was a very nice buck which still had the velvet on. Guessing it had been one that got used to people feeding it since it was not scared of us at all.

Yes, you can pretty much walk right up to the deer there….. no fear of humans.
