Rain and Snow-Melt Waterfall in Zion National Park, Utah

Another site on my trip I was anxious to get back to and get some new, updated shots was Zion National Park in southern Utah. I was trying to get there before a big cold front was coming there and upon driving south on Highway 89 to get there, I discovered I didn’t quite beat the cold front. From out of nowhere it began snowing just as hard as anything I’ve seen here in Jackson Hole. Given that it was snowing all the way in, I was excited to get into the park and get some shots of it covered in snow, something I had yet to see and had always wanted to see. By the time I reached the entrance station however, the biggest part of the storm had passed and the snow was melting fast! By the time I had gotten through the tunnel, all the snow had melted from Zion Canyon and was still only in the eastern part and the higher altitudes.

Regardless, I was still happy to see the canyon streaming with waterfalls around every corner! I set up camp and took a shuttle up to the end of Zion Canyon and got this shot of one such temporary waterfall. This is just one of many that I was able to capture and had an overall great experience in Zion National Park.
