Couldn't Find the Head

I was hiking in Zion National Park a few days ago.  The weather was perfect, with highs in the low 70s.  I came across the remains of some poor creature.



That's Progeny Peak in the background.

Many locals told me about the enormous crowds and horrible traffic jams that happened on the preceding holiday weekend.  I enjoyed the park with hardly any people there.  The parking lots were practically empty.  The only full parking lot I saw was at The Grotto, where people parked to hike Angels Landing.


Firefighters were doing a controlled burn in south campground.



Here's a shot I took from part way up South Ariel Peak.
