The Watchman - Zion National Park

Zion National Park in southwest Utah is a true national treasure. 

The landscape is a painting of red and orange sandstone stripes that were deposited over the course of 150 million years. This ancient sea bed was lifted 10,000 feet by volcanic forces and now the strips of sandstone show at least nine specific geologic periods. The deep canyons we see today were carved by the Virgin River and the Pine Creek.

This is the majestic Watchman peak that stands guard over the opening into the great Zion Canyon. The setting sun paints the face of the mountain in orange as the tranquil, winding Virgin River winds gently below.  What a scene!
