The American Southwest

When we left home we planned to be gone for three weeks… It didn’t take long to realize that three weeks would not begin to scratch the surface of what is to be experienced in the Southwest. Ten weeks on the road, we visited Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico.

While traveling through the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument we boondocked off the Burr Trail. This canyon is stunning! Then we moved on to the incomparable Zion National Park. Utah has my heart!

Journey with the Boys to a less explored hidden treasure in one of the busiest National Parks in the world. Get away from the crowds, walk along the river, and shutter at the sheer beauty and imposing grandiosity of the red rock canyons of Zion National Park. We discover an awe inspiring cave, cacti, fall colors, icy trails in the desert on our way to the breathtaking Double Arch Alcove of Kolob Canyon.

Zion Canyon is one of the many spectacular sandstone canyons carved out of the Colorado
plateau. Though it is a desert, water carved this land, removing material over the millennia, cutting deep through the sandstone. This flowing water has formed a land rich in amazing formations such as the subway and the zion narrows. Water also has created one of Zion’s most unique habitats, the hanging gardens. Here water flows from the rock. American dippers build their nests among the plants clinging to the wall. Ripple bugs skitter about, and Long-jaw orbweavers spin webs to trap any insects coming in for a drink.
However, one species here is a little more emblematic and special, the Zion Snail. This tiny snail is endemic to hanging gardens in only a 3 mile stretch of canyon. Grazing on algae, they move slowly along the rockface. Its foot is unusually large, giving it more powerful suction in this vertical habitat with flowing water. Likewise its thin, smooth shell helps reduce drag, being similar to many unrelated stream dwelling snails. Usually specimens encountered are very small, only the size of a pinhead, but some get to grow a bit larger, though still smaller than a kernal of corn. They were described in 1925, just 6 years after Zion national park was established, by malacologist Henry Pilsbry who was very excited by his discovery of this snail living in these unique habitats.

This is the seventh video in the series documenting my Winter 2019 photography trip to Death Valley and Zion National Parks. In this episode I hike The Narrows in Zion and then find some more winter cottonwoods and other subjects both in the main Zion Canyon and the upper plateau on the east side.

Here’s the equipment rental company I always use when hiking the narrows. On this trip I used the full body dry suit and two pair of neoprene socks under the river shoes. I was plenty warm and never got wet.
