Wandering Camera In October

I managed to do a little Wandering Camera photo shots on a day trip to
Zion National Park in Utah. The views were spectacular!

There were so many red rocks and mountains, each changing to lighter or
darker red depending on which way we were driving. 


There was so much texture in all those rocks, too!




A few deer and mountain sheep popped up for quick glances.




A rare moment of an empty road. Zion has millions of visitors each year.


The tunnel...I was scared of this when I was a kid. It's still kind of spooky and very dark.


A few flowers were still hanging in there before the cold hits.


It was a fabulous day!


Another day was spent at Grandpa's Pond, a favorite picnic spot.


It was a perfect setting for my shark quilt. There's no sharks in this pond,
but they did remove an alligator from there last year. Apparently, someone
thought it would be a good place to drop off their overgrown pet. Yikes!


This guy came in for a close-up.


That blue eye is gorgeous!


Of course, there had to be a bug...in this case it was a bee.


Thanks for stopping by today for a quick view of my September Wandering Camera.

Gorgeous photos of Zion. I was there the day there were a million visitors. :D I would love to go when there are not so many people, and without Bobbin in tow. Great pic of the goose and the bee.

Beautiful photos Carol, we went thru Zion Park several years ago while on a tour in the US, it was an amazing place to see..I remember tunnels like the one in your photo.
Your shark quilt looks wonderful in that setting...bit scary about the alligator!! The colours on the goose are beautiful, great shot of the bee.

You are really good with the lens. The colors are fabulous. I think you should attempt a quilt capturing the texture of those mountains ;-}

What gorgeous scenery to show off your shark quilt. What stunning colors you captured on film! A crocodile in the lake is certainly no joke...but at least there were no sharks except for your beauty.

Wow, such lovely photos of stunning landscapes. How sweet is your goose...such pretty eyes. Fabulous shark quilt!

It has been such a long time since I visited Zion. I had a great time revisiting it with you. So great that you live close by to make it a day trip for you. You captured the colours so beautifully in your photos. Grandpa's Pond is a lovely picnic spot, and for your quilt photo too!

Thank You so much for linking up on Wandering Camera!
