    Nice snaps, Daniel! Very nice comps. So cool you got it with snow. Looks like you had a great trip with the family. How was the crowd at Mesa Arch? Shoulder to shoulder?

    Beautiful shots! AIn't the snow on the red rocks pretty? I've been there in mid winter and mid summer. I much preferred the winter look of the park, possibly also due to the fact that there weren't a million visitors that day.

    I think that is Wolf Canyon on I-70 in the first image.

    Great sky you had at Delicate Arch - you sure you don't want that image in color? Or at least high contrast B&W?

    Snow on the red rocks can be just gorgeous in red rock country, but it usually doesn't last very long.

    Looks like you all had a great time.

    Did you take in Dead Horse State Park while you were out there as well?
