Within Zion Canyon are 7 hiking trails through geological wonders. The average hiking time is from half an hour to 4 hours. Across from the classical Zion Lodge are the Emerald Pools trails - Lower, Middle and Upper. These are scenic favorites that reveal the Canyon as the trails meander upwards.
In this view are waterfalls flowing over a sandstone ledge along the Trail, the result of an early November snowfall the day before, then warm sun melting the snow at higher ground.

A very impressive site! The trees here indicate the size of this formation. Very fine and attractive colours and water running along here also provide fine effects.

great view on the orange rocks. The deep white furrows must be from waterfalls, if so they can be pretty strong there. That curve does look like an amphitheater indeed and judging by your point of view you had a VIP seat!:))
Thanks and all the best!

You're capturing well this canyon by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see rock fault with some layers and hollow, and two waterfalls at left side. And, it's also impressive in snowfall's marks and surrounding greenery.

Thats a beautiful natural wonder you've captured there and amphitheater is the perfect description. I love the deep red tones (i think I may have said that once or twice before!!) but I also love the waterfalls from the snow melt. Lovely idea to have the strip of greenery at the very top too as a very nice color contrast. Lovely place and shot.

An overwhelming sight, Ray, with the one man stood on the narrow trail under the big arch.
Water flows from above and the round shape are most imporessively collected.
Fine photojob from the POV taken, and the vivid colors.

well spotted amazing rock - its texture and colors are really interesting and the tiny stream of water
falling of the rock makes the whole composition slightly more delicate. Very pretty colors, good sharpness and perfect light.
All the best
