Our day started with a squirrel in a bush next to the rig, watching the fancy Class A next to us.
We headed for the northwest corner of Zion which is accessible only from Interstate 15. This is the Kolob Canyons area, which are finger-like smaller Zion canyons in the making.
You can drive to an overlook at see more big wall sandstone…
and rather provacative scenery.
As our usual mode of operation, we went for a hike, specifically up the middle fork of Taylor Creek. A nice five mile round trip into a tightening canyon with a running stream.
There were quite a few stream crossings. In fact, I counted 55 crossings of this stupid stream on the trip back. All in 2.5 miles!
Other times, the trail smelled of deep woods pine.
Before slogging back into the middle of the creek.
We meet this fine female, who thought we should get out of the way instead!
She must have lived here.
Nice desert varnish in the making with actual water.
This is the end of the trail, a huge undercut cave structure. A double overhang was suspended above the entrance with a small overflow of water. The picture does not do it justice.
Water dancing in the air…
