The Wind River Range is in Wyoming, south of Jackson. The closest town is Pinedale. It’s an easy place to drive to and so has many visitors. The Cirque of the Towers is a sweeping arc of sheer granite pinnacles along the spine of the continental divide. Here are a few images:
Fantastic weather and a waning moon brought me to the coast on Saturday in another attempt to capture some decent nighttime images.
Along Zion Valley Road the tourist bus makes many stops. Trailheads lead up to all sorts of fabulous places. One of the stops, “Weeping Rock” has trails leading to Observation Point, Weeping Rock and Hidden Valley.
Climbing up the switchbacks which have been cleverly crafted into the cliff face one reaches a junction and veers right, up into Hidden Canyon.
What a wonderful place to spend an afternoon exploring! A sandy floor hemmed in by wonderfully colored rock walls…Zion is truly a gem, a fantastically diverse park full of surprises. This formation is on the underside of a rock overhang…not sure how it got there…
