Day 276: June 28, 2005 - Purple Flowers

by Karen Williams
So you have probably noticed by now that I love flowers. I love to photograph them. Big, small, weed, tropical, I like them all. This one doesn't really look like a desert plant to me, the leaves have such a deep green color, and the blossom itself is a vivid shade of violet. Zion is like that though. You will be hiking along, and in a secluded corner of a canyon where the water from spring is slower to dissipate you will find a blossoming oasis of flowers and plants. Maybe that is why this desert landscape fascinates me so much. You never know what to expect - and are often pleasantly surprised at the enormous amount of life that thrives here.

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.
