Taking Pictures

When taking pictures in the cold, the biggest problem is keeping your hands warm. Most camera bodies are metal and conduct heat right out of your fingers. I prefer to wear a relatively thin pair of liner gloves, making it easy to operate the camera. When I’m not photographing, I have a pair of very large mittens hanging from my wrists. I take off the mittens, shoot pictures quickly, and then slip my hands back into the warm gloves. Soon enough your fingers will feel warm again, and you’ll have incredible images of the wintry landscape.

Zion is a dazzling show of color and canyons—deep blue sky, lush green piƱon and juniper forests, and bright crimson sandstone canyons carved by flowing streams and rivers. Some of the park’s most dramatic slot canyons are accessible to hikers, while others lie deep in the backcountry, yet still readily seen from high-country viewpoints.

America's Greatest Treasures

As the intersection of three separate ecosystems, Zion has a variety of plants—more than 900 species—not found anywhere else in Utah. The 287.4-foot-longKolob Arch, perched high on a canyon wall in the park's backcountry, is one of the world's largest freestanding natural arches. In 1920, Zion National Park had 3,692 visitors. In 1998, the park had 2.7 million visitors.

Whether your fancy is glacial lakes, sandy beaches, rocky coasts, or lush forests, Canada has them all, in a national park system that’s one of the world’s best.\

Forillon National Park protects a range of varied little ecosystems: natural prairies and farm fields, seaside cliffs, rivers, lakes, marshes, the seashore itself, and forest. Virtually all the park is covered with forests that shelter a peculiar combination of some 700 kinds of local flora along with plants normally found in Arctic or alpine environments, such as purple mountain saxifrage, tufted saxifrage, and white dryad.

Experienced hikers flock to the Subway, a canyon that runs through the Left Fork of North Creek at Zion National Park. Be ready to get wet and dirty—both routes require crossing streams, scrambling over slippery boulders, and climbing steep ascents.
