Colorful Skies- Blue sky over Three Patriarchs of Zion


Zion National Park Three Patriarchs

Zion National Park is home for high sandstone cliffs and peaks. One could see as many but still there will some more left to see. And each of these cliffs are named with interesting names.


These three neighboring jurassic aged sandstone peaks are named after the 'old testament daddies' Abraham (6990'), Isaac (6825') and Jacob(6831'). Though the sky is not that very impressive I like those peaks :)

    Living in the low and flat Netherlands I always like to see mountains and rocks under a clear blue sky.
