Monument Valley Photo Tour Friday April 27th, 2012
Detroit to Zion National Park

We have arrived safely at our first location Zion National Park.  We flew out of Detroit just after 8:00 a.m. this morning to Las Vegas then met our Motor Coach and driver Rick for and began our journey to Zion National Park.  The drive took us about 3 1/2 hours, arriving just after 5:00 p.m. Zion time.  The weather here was 28 C and after the group checked into our rooms some wondered around taking a few photos while others spent some time relaxing by the pool.  Our first photo shoot was a sunset shoot at 7:30 p.m. 

Tomorrow we head into the canyon for a full day of photography at several locations in the park. We have organized box lunches to be deliverd to our mid-day location so we can take a break then carry on with our afternoon schedule.

The images below are a few shots from traveling and the park today.


Brenda ready for departure, and we are impressed as she decided to travel light on this journey.

Keep up the good work Honey. Momma needs a new pair of shoes, a camera to use while you travel with all three, and tech support while your away. Have fun all.
