I just stumbled across a post regarding the latest version of the Blog Carnival Good Planet. This week's theme is "water." The current hostess is Vicki of A Mark on My Wall.
All that is required to participate is to send photos relating to the theme. Of course submissions are due today, in fact it is possibly even now past the deadline but I sent in two photos of water in the desert.
Last August my family and I spent a couple of wonderful days in Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park. Both are among the most beautiful places on a most beautiful planet. Zion is blessed with a river that keeps its valley green. Here are a few photos taken from a hike we took up the Narrow Canyon Trail.
The canyon wall.
Continuing up the canyon requires wading in cold water.
Fortunately my father didn't know how to focus my camera. The kids and I went swimming. The 90 degree weather made it tolerable, barely. Trust me, the Virgin River is frigid. Pun intended.
