The Watchman

We drove up the valley a bit, away from the lights of Springdale (glow at the bottom right) to see the stars. The night sky in Utah can be really dark[1], the milky way easily visible at the right time of year.

 

A nice way to end the trip - Utah has been astonishing, dramatic and beautiful, and Zion was arguably the highlight. I'd love to go back.
