It never hurts to stick around when a snowstorm threatens. I love a fresh snow but often gates are locked and I can’t get in. Not so today. I woke up to ~3 inches of snow on the van and a relatively balmy 36°F inside.
I’m hanging around to see what light opens up on the Kolob Canyons peaks in Zion National Park. The roads are risky for driving anyway. I just love my Mercedes Sprinter photography adventure van—just as comfortable as at home and with aggressive BF Goodrich K02 all-terrain tires and 4 wheel drive with high clearance, this snow can be a foot deep for all I care. I just wish they had not plowed the road—it encourages visitors!
Update 11:50 AM: the snow continues to accumulate, although the road is now plowed and open. There is a steady stream of visitors getting a thrill from the snow.
Yesterday, I went out late in the day after a whole day of gray clouds. Of course, that is when the sun broke out! But I got some nice panos; see Cycling Zion National Park: Eastern Side, Main Canyon, Kolob Canyons. The gray clouds presaged the snowstorm, above.
