Getting to Zion

Sunday morning (the Sunday after Labor Day weekend) I headed north out of Kanab on Route 89 with the intent of spending a good portion of the day in Zion National Park, which is not far away.  Before I even got to the Park entrance I made many stops to admire and photograph some of the many rock formations located right along the highway.  The morning sun really lit up the formations to my left.

And even the elaborate formations on my right caught my eye.

I soon came across an abandoned property which had once been some type of tourist attraction.  It was fenced off, with signs warning people to keep out, but I quickly became obsessed with this huge formation with a dead-calm reflective lake in front of it.
