Nature, Landscape, and Night Sky Photography by Zach Schierl

Down the Staircase

Some photos from a week exploring southern Utah, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Staircase:

Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado River. 4-shot panorama. Given that it was about 110 when I took this, I can't even describe how appealing that water looked...

The infamous murderer of Glen Canyon, a.k.a: Glen Canyon Dam, Colorado River

Peakaboo Trail, Bryce Canyon National Park

Summer Milky Way from Rainbow Point, Bryce Canyon National Park

Kodachrome Basin, near Cannonville, UT

The Toadstools, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Toadstool. Yours truly for scale.

Toadstool close-up. Basically the orange sandstone of the Entrada Formation (same stuff that forms the famous spans of Arches National Park) is easily erodible but portions get protected by boulders of the harder and more resistant Dakota Sandstone that originate in the cliffs above.
