Water Dragon Sunday Post: Close-Up ~ Zion National Park

  “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives.  It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
~Charles Darwin

Close-up…..Zion National Park…..”Garden Wall”

 

In Zion National Park, there is a short hike of a mile alongside the Virgin River.  The name of the hike is “Riverside Walk”.
Good things come in small packages.  There are plenty of wonderful sights to see on this short hike, on mostly level ground.
Every time you turn a corner, you open up a new vista between the massive canyon walls.
One of the sights to behold is the “Garden Wall”.  It is so named because constant dripping water down the rock face has created an environment for plants to grow.
One is able to gaze at the colorful rock facade and see various plants growing in niches all the way to the top.

Thanks for visiting!
