The West Rim of Zion National Park climbs from the bottom of the canyon, up to the top of West Rim, then extends on over to Kolob Terrace across the West Wilderness. This is rugged country, with great sandstone cliffs. The views are glorious and seldom seen, due to the difficulty of the trails.

I happened to be on top of the West Rim, overlooking the West Wilderness during two separate thunderstorms. These resulted in several unusual pictures as the rains cascaded down over the slick rock.
