I thought I would also show this shot of a leaf frozen in ice, since I am on an ice theme today. The ice was a thin sheet that was very brittle with nothing underneath. The leaf, since it was darker and absorbed more sunlight, had melted into the ice.
Some of the mountains in Zion are high enough that the sun has a hard time reaching the floor of some of the valley's. Ice, then, can last over a period of days even though the temperature can be very pleasant. This is an up-close photo of an area of ice in a stream. I wanted to capture the shape of the bubbles in the ice.

My wife and I were driving back to the lodge in Zion when, after having come through the tunnel (those who have been there will know what I am talking about) and caught the sun hitting a portion of one of the many cliffs in just the right way. The color was amazing, and even more brilliant orange than the picture shows. I have several shots of this event and will show more with time. Enjoy.
