As we waited for the traffic flow to switch at the head of the Zion Mt. Carmel Tunnel (one of the tunnel gallery windows may be seen in the right hand image), a member of our party suggested dinner and margaritas at the 'Bit and Spur' restaurant in Springdale. This suggestion galvanized our driver into action, so that what had hitherto been a gentle amble suddenly turned into a hell for leather dash.

We were permitted one photographic stop, to take yesterday's Zion Grand Arch picture, but confess with a blush that today's pictures were shot from a moving vehicle. Springdale is home to a clique of expert photographers, one of whose number makes a big deal about waiting for the light, mostly: he takes far better pictures than we do, but fecklessness is purposeless unless done with panache & élan.

Oh, what a day-to-day business life is.
