Just a dayhike from Hop Valley to La Verkin Creek off the Kolob Terrace Road in Zion, 13 miles up and back. The weather changed and gave me such a treat. Sometimes bad weather has it's bright lining.

Short period where the skies cleared and the snow was sliding off the mountains.

Nice. I feel Hop Valley is a very under appreciated trail in Zion but is one of my faves. Seeing it with that weather is neat. Thanks for sharing!

Zion always looks better with a little snow for contrast.

Great captures with great lighting @cmgz. I too loved the one with the cloud deck poring over the ridge.

The views from the top of the drop off into LaVerkin Creek were spectacular. That is a condition not many get to see. Thank you!
