Last moments of eclipse

The basins of Canyonlands National Park from the Green River Overlook. Sunset.

Evening’s magical light had waned once, returned to normal, and was now fading fast. Shadows crept into the canyons, stealthily chasing remaining light from them; White Rim Sandstone steadfastly held its glow. My heart was overwhelmed at the grandeur. I pinched myself, again, at the unspeakable privilege of working in this national park. My joy is complete.


  1. been there.

  2. Your picture is from the same spot where I did my last ranger presentation
    at the end of the season in ’09; thanks for the memory.

  3. Your writing draws me in. You manage to capture the emotion, sounds and symphony of the moment.
    Thank you.

  4. Kathryn, this is off topic but I don’t know how else to contact you… What have you heard about the proposed nuclear power plant on the Green River? I just saw a post by Terry Tempest Williams about it, on her Facebook page… http://www.facebook.com/terrytempestwilliams
