Alton I. Vance July 27, 2005

Once again thank you all for your encouraging comments. I had gone to Zion to shoot some photos but the winter run off was too high in May from all the rains this year so I went home and stopped off at Valley of Fire, a place I'd never been before, and this is one of the shots from there. Thank you again!
