Fortresses Against Time

Someone I met on our recent trip said that the Grand Canyon looks like Zion upside down. Virtually all the shots I took at Zion were pointing up, while almost all the shots I took at The Grand Canyon were pointing down.

That said, the rock structures themselves were magnificent in both places, dwarfing the human imagination. For a moment, at least, they almost made me wish that I had studied geology some time during my life.

Luckily, you don’t need to understand these structures to appreciate their beauty


in all


their diverse forms.


When I did think about them, I tended to think of them as fortresses


withstanding the onslaught of time.


Magical fortresses that will be here long after we are gone.
