Day 11: October 6, 2004 - Sunrise Surprise

by Christian Williams

Early mornings bath the cliffs of Zion in warm light, intensifying the already vivid colors of the mountains. I climbed this mountain the obtain a breathtaking view of the mountains and valleys of Zion that appear to go on forever. And yes, it was very steep - harder to get back down than to climb up!

Bighorn Sheep Hangout

After taking some photos of the fantastic views at sunrise, I looked around me (in an attempt to avoid the inevitable trip back down the mountain face) and to my surprise, found a herd of Bighorn sheep. Bighorn sheep were reintroduced in Zion National Park in the 1990s, in an attempt to bolster the dwindling population of Bighorn Sheep in the west.

365 Days in Zion is a photo experience by Karen and Christian Williams. Together, we spent an entire year in Zion National Park amidst snow, rain, flash floods, brush fires, and the beautiful sunny blue skies that typify Southern Utah in the United States of America.
