The National Parks #38: Zion, Utah
Alright, I’ve been putting this off for a while, but here is the last entry in my National Parks series. This is Zion, which I’ve visited in summer and winter. Each season changes the canyon considerably. Trading white for green really alters your perception of the orange and red rocks. Zion is like a smaller, less crowded, and more colorful Yosemite. I actually prefer it to Yosemite, but that’s just me.
There are still 22 places left to photograph and add here… it’s just a matter of time.
Striped icebergs are quite a view. They can form a couple different ways. Blue stripes occur when layers of ice melt and refreeze so fast that no bubbles — which scatter light to give icebergs their white appearance — are created. If the water that freezes is rich in algae, the bands may appear green. Black, brown, and yellow striations are created by sediments picked up by a glacier as it runs down a mountain into the ocean.
