The Watchman by Stuzal The Watchman by Stuzal
One of the great parks of the U.S. Zion National. One of my favourite places in Utah. Sleeping beneath the Watchman was truly one of the highlights of my camping career. And where I learned that campers are the nicest people in the world. When I was away taking pics my tent blew away. When I came back, someone had put all my stuff back for me. And I never got to thank them. I hope they are reading this right now!

At night the place kinda turned into a wind tunnel. Thankfully there are those out there willing to take the time to help out. What a world.
