USA 2014 - Zion National Park, Kolob Canyon

For our first stop in Zion National Park, we headed to Kolob Canyon, at the end of our drive from Arches.  It was mid-afternoon with a high sun and very dry and hot, so we only did the short trail to canyon outlook, but it was worth it.

In the trees a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher pipped and called as it foraged around:

Some cactus flowers had emerged:

The canyon landscape is spectacular:

We drove on to our hotel, the Bumbleberry Inn in Springdale on the road into the main park, for an early night ahead of an even earlier start the next day, we wanted to catch the very first bus into the park, which departs before daybreak.
