[Zion National Park, Utah; June, 2011]
Two years ago, I wrote a â€œJPGâ€ narrative, â€œThe American West â€“ Which Way?â€ Hereâ€™s what I said:
â€œWhat you see often depends on the direction you are driving.
â€œWhen driving a 3,000-mile loop in a week to ten days, time is critical. Such a demanding schedule leaves little room for error. There are no second chances.
â€œThat is why it is so important to select the right routes, because there will be no time to go back. To illustrate the point, consider Zion National Park.
â€œZion should be entered from the east (Mt. Carmel Junction). The descent to the valley floor is spectacular. You miss that effect when entering Zion from the southwest.â€
Well, guess what? This summer, I broke my own rule and entered Zion from the southwest, exactly what I said you shouldnâ€™t do!
But, had I not broken my rule, I might not have seen the sign saying â€œWELCOME DOGGY DUDESâ€!!!
I knew that this was a â€œJPG moment.â€
I followed the arrow to the â€œDoggy Dude Ranch.â€ I mean, who wouldnâ€™t?
Now I have all these national parks to revisit . . . from the â€œwrongâ€ direction.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
