Traveling back from Yellowstone National Park, I stopped at Zion National Park. Zion is a truly remarkable place. I took a tram to the end of a canyon where I took a short hike along the Virgin River. I took a path off the main trail that led down to the river. This is what I saw. The green of the vegetation against the red of the canyon walls seemed almost staged. I took this shot at 8:15 in the morning of October 4, 2012. It was quiet except for the sounds of the river and birds.
