Deep in the Narrows, in Zion National Park, Utah, this tree was growing straight out of the cliff. Approximately 100 feet above the river below and several hundred feet below the top of the cliff. I found it amazing the tree could survive in such a seemingly illogical location. Light had just illuminated its leaves but had yet to reach high enough into the sky to light the lower portions of the narrow canyon. I felt it left an incredible scene of stark contrast as the tree blazed a brilliant yellow against a dark canyon wall.
