Southwest Gallery Additions July 2018
A long but engaging journey through the back country of Zion National Park. We hiked through streams and a forest valley with little clues of civilization. Finally reaching the end of this box canyon we were rewarded greatly by this double arched sandstone evolution. The stillness and desolation were ideal and we both worked in our own ways at compositions that were inspired distillations.
This is The Subway, a geological fascination. We hiked here, beginning before dawn, up a considerable creek with small waterfalls continually, requiring us to hike over massive slump rocks the entire hike. Finally reaching here weary from the exertion, we came around this bend and were stunned at the presence before us. Our energy levels immediately gathered their reserves and we began to develop compositions of grandeur. Even now, reflecting back on this day, we bask in the glow of how amazing Mother Nature can be.
