    This was one of my top bucket list to visit...in 2010 we were on our way but had to make a u turn because my kid got sick...so I was so excited to go this year.

    We stay at Zion National Park and took a day trip there and it doesn't disappoint. I will go back there for sure may be when there is snow.

    Very nice! It's been on my bucket list for awhile too. I am scheduled to go in September, so your pics make me look forward to it even more.

    Nice images! We were there in April and really loved it there. You have reminded me to go through and process my images. Saw your earlier shots from the Horseshoe bend and it looks like you are doing the Grand Circle like we did. Looking forward to your shots from Zion :)

    Thank you @joma416@joma416. It's so beautiful, you won't regret it. Looking back set up camp at Bryce instead of Zion might be better even though there are more stuff to do in Zion but Bryce is more center to go to other parks.

    We actually stayed in Page for 2 nights so that we could go to Horseshoe Canyon, but ended up not being able to do it because my 5yo was too tired. I will need to go back for that. But the whole place is beautiful, so I am not sure I mind. Also, agree with your thought about using Bryce as a base. We only did a day trip to Bryce and I wish we had stayed the night. I camped there back in 2000 and it was a wonderful experience.

    The panorama of the sunset is great. Love the arching clouds. Did you do a multirow set up or how come, it is not in a typical panorama aspect ratio?

    Thank you @stratokaster@stratokaster, @Hypilein@Hypilein,
    @MarkoPolo@MarkoPolo, @acnomad@acnomad and @Harvey Melvin Richards@Harvey Melvin Richards.

    I think I push the new ACR Boundary Warp a bit too far.

    @Harvey Melvin Richards@Harvey Melvin Richards, you have to...it's too beautiful to drive by, especially you cannot see anything from the road :)

    Nice shots thanks for sharing. The clouds really add a dimension to the photo's. Both times I have been there it has been raining so I did not get any decent images. Maybe third time will be a charm.

    That's what I told my wife too :)

    I just told my friend that getting lucky with the weather is part of the good pictures too.
