A cold, windy day in the hills above Danville.

Skywatch Friday, Death Valley

Approaching storm.
Looking across Death Valley from Badwater Basin.
It doesn't often rain in Death Valley, but I managed to visit when it did!
The wind was blowing up to 50mph across the dry lakebed. I couldn't hold the camera steady because of the gusty winds. The next night and the following day it rained in Death Valley and snowed in the surrounding mountains.

SkyWatch Friday, Zion

Early April in Zion National Park, Utah
Clear, blue desert skies.
Sunny days and blustery, cold nights in Zion Canyon.
Abundant waterfalls and a muddy, brown Virgin River.

Waterfall at Lower Emerald Pool

A deep blue sky above a waterfall.
Sky, rock, water...
Virgin River, Zion, Utah.

Late afternoon sky.
