Rain in Zion NP

It rained on me during a recent trip to Zion NP.  Unlike the short light showers I've experienced in the past, this was a persistent and often heavy rain.  My first hike was to the Northgate Peaks in the Kolob Terrace area and it rained almost the entire time.  I decided it was too dangerous to tackle the slickrock on West NorthGate Peak, so I'll do that on another trip.  Here's a shot along the trail from under a tree.  It was still a nice hike.

It's hard to see, but on the east side of the park, the water was running off the slickrock in sheets.
