ザイオンの東 East of Zion


ザイオンの東はザイオン国立公園内の深い渓谷とは違い、コロラド高原の雄大さを感じる所です。 You can see the grand views of the Colorado plateau to the east of Zion, whereas inside Zion National Park you can enjoy the views of the deep cut majestic valley.

小さいながらも山や谷、池も点在するので大きな鳥たちが好む場所と言えるかもしれません。鳥については後で書きます。 Although the scale is small, there are mountains, valleys, and ponds. I think that is one of the reasons why large birds like eagles can be found there. I will write about the birds in a separate entry later.

光を求めて来たのに暑い雲が空一面に被っていました。でも、時々差し込む光を発見すると、その美しさに息を呑みます。Most of the day the sky was covered with thick clouds. Because of that, when you occasionally find light, you find the beauty right there.

翌朝、日の出前にザイオン国立公園内に入りました。イーストテンプルかな?月が沈む前にもう光を浴び始めています。We went inside Zion National Park before sunrise the next day. Could it be the East temple? The tip of it had already gotten the morning light even before the moon set.

渓谷の朝は凍りついていましたが、光を受けて輝く岩を見ると勇気が湧いてきます。The valley was frozen, but I’ve gotten a strong power by looking at the top of the golden rocks.

ちなみに、私たちの泊まったZion Mountain Ranch は場所的にお勧めです。ロッジからザイオンの山が見えていました。夕食のバッファローのフィレミニオンも美味しくいただきました。 By the way, we stayed at Zion Mountain Ranch. You could see the mountains of Zion NP from the lodge. One of the dinner entrees, buffalo filet mignon, I can for sure recommend.
