December Wallpaper Zion Narrows

As much as I love winter in Colorado, Utah provides a stark contrast in scenery while waiting for the mountains to be covered in snow. After spending all day in The Subway two days prior, our group opted to rent drysuits for an all-day excursion into the Narrows, a slot canyon in Zion National Park. It turned out to be a great decision and the 42 degree water was actually semi-pleasant. This photo of a particularly high area of the canyon walls was shot early in the morning when the light hit the walls perfectly.
