“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul”
It is often said that “One Picture is worth a Thousand Words”.
So please enjoy the following 25,000 word essay on the beauty and majesty of Zion National Park.
Love, Dad/Bill/Poppy and Mom/Kit/Guma
Seeing any mule deer out there cowboy? Say hello to the missus!
Your photos remind us that we need to return to Zion Natl Park, and feast our eyes on God’s awesome creation! I need to stay there several days in order to do some sketching and watercolors…
You know…..I have never seen an artist in the park sketching or painting those incredible landscapes. Wonder why?
Awesome pictures! Have you thought about free lancing in your spare time? Today is pack-up day for us–heading to SF tomorrow for a couple of days and then HOME Friday! See you next month?
Thanks…..I just shoot what I like and somehow the photos come out OK. Have a safe and enjoyable trip home!
One of the best essays I have read in a long time Bill. Great work and a great set of photos also.
Come home soon. We got in today.
Welcome home and thanks for the kind comments on my photo taking. We are on our way home, slowly. See you all in a few weeks!
Such beauty… and as rugged as some of it is, it is still restful to look at. I think sometime in the summer you should have an exhibit of your ‘adventure in photographs’…..really!
Thanks…..I’ll keep that in mind. We are slowly making our way home. Looking forward to seeing all in a few weeks.
Beautiful — Is that the same John Muir as the one of Muir Woods fame on the peninsula north of San Francisco?
Yep…..as well as another dozen places. Muir is know as The Father of the National Parks because he championed the establishment of Yosemite and Sequoia NP. In addition he started the Sierra Club which is still active to this day. Ken Burns has a lot about John Muir in his book, “The National Park: America’s Best Idea”.
