Arriving in Zion National Park

After a long drive through a depressed looking Navajo Reservation, I arrived at Zion National Park yesterday eve. I can’t help but be disturbed by the notion of driving from one protected natural space to another via the land we have set aside for the Navajo. The inhabitants of the reservation seemed just as set aside as the land. I’m not sure what to make of this yet. But it is sticking with me so I’ll be thinking about it while making drawings here in Zion.
In the meantime, here are some images of this beautiful place.


  1. Hi Michelle,
    Wonderful images! I hope this place inspires you like the Grand Canyon did.
    I hope you are planning on hiking the Zion Subway trail. Very beautiful, and intimate scale.
    I am not sure the Narrows trail is a good idea for this time of year, but it is an incredible experience - perhaps you should have cold feet about it!
    Best wishes,
    Jon Romig

  2. Thanks for the tips Jon! There is no snow here so all trails are passable.
