2018 Fall Colors @ Zion National Park
Springdale, Utah

October 23-28, 2018 - 5 SPOTS AVAILABLE


Zion National Park encompasses some of the most scenic canyon country in the United States. Massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky. The Park varies in elevation from 3666 feet to 8726 feet.

We will target foliage in splendid fall colors along the brilliant red/pink canyons. We will also photograph the splendid enormous pine and juniper covered plateaus, narrow sandstone canyons, the windy Virgin River, and many seeps, springs, and waterfalls.

Four full days of photography at Zion NP including one full day wading down the Narrows.  At the Narrows the Virgin river is only 20-30 feet wide and the gorge can be up to 1000 feet tall, creating spectacular slot canyons.
