Classic Zion National Park in Autumn

We have traveled many places in but we had never been to Zion National park in Utah until this Fall. For some reason, we always thought it was so far way in Utah. But when I sit down and researched, it was only about 6 hours drive from Orange County. It was not that far. We arrived at on late Saturday afternoon and had a few hours to explore outside of the park. It was so beautiful. We took a stroll along the Pa'rus Trail which next the Virgin River. Then I stumbled upon this viewpoint of the Watchman. I quickly set up my tripod and captured some photos as the sun setting. To be honest, I looked at so many photo of the Watchman bridge view that I didn't even want to go directly there.

But as you can see in the following photo, we did come to the Bridge the next day and took the post card shot. Even though the weather was not as good as the day before, we had a blast. There were so many photographers on the Bridge that we didn't have a place to stay.

It was dry and warm this year so foliage was not at its peak condition. However, it was still the most gorgeous place that we have been to recently.

The park was so beautiful. I wish we had time to stay for a few days instead just a weekend. But work and life had to come first.
