Mystic - "Objects That Remain Still"

by Brenda Nelson October. 03, 2012 3992 views

These mountains were once sea level, then were pushed upward due to cataclysmic events, then were worn down again by wind and water. Today, they stand magnificently above the landscape and appear to have never changed at all!

The sun comes up every morning on these ages-old mountains in Zion Park

Looking upward to the top about 3000 feet above!

Sunrise on the sentinel formation in Zion - “The Watchman”

These huge rocks probably fell from the top of the mountains, but have been immovable for the last 5000 years!

This is the opening to “The Narrows”, a slot canyon that is only reachable by wading the river
