Day 9: October 4, 2004 - Cloud Burst

Storm Brewing

After taking a few pictures while the sun was going down, I turned to look behind me and was surprised to see the thick clouds rolling in. The desert often has unpredictable changes of weather, and this day was no exception.

The Heavens Open

This is just outside the east entrance of Zion National Park. Desert rain storms often drop massive amounts of water in a short period of time in a localized spot. As we left the park, we saw this cloud burst - but we didn't get wet at all. We just enjoyed the awesome view of water pouring from the heavens, complete with rainbow.

Beautiful! It must be easier to be in the right place at the right time if you are there every day. :-)

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.
