“Zion National Park: Canyon of Light”

This is a section of a large collection of peaks known as the “Towers of the Virgin.”  This collection includes the West Temple, the Sundial, the Altar of Sacrifice, and Meridian Tower.  Some claim they can see the shrouded figure of the Virgin Mary on the face of the central peak.  This was a sunrise exploration.

The “Weeping Wall,” (below) is where groundwater, that has seeped 2,000 feet through sandstone from Echo Canyon, emerges to create a dripping wall. The “weeping” water was photographed in an alcove to allow a view of the lush vegetation behind the water.
