The Temple of Sinawava

It was a pleasure today to have a guide through Zion National Park — and even better that my guide is a watercolour painter. Russell Black lives not far from the park and paints here often so imagine my luck when he offered to accompany me to some favourite sketching spots of his. Zion is the greenest of Utah’s National Parks with rivers, waterfalls and hanging gardens. I guess we could have climbed to the great lookout points but it was a pleasure to sketch in the cool shade of the greenery both in the Temple of Sinawava and near the waterfalls of the Emerald Pools. Check out Russell’s wonderful watercolours of these splendid spots here.
