Zion National Park...the canyon. We were the only visitors early one winter morning, It had rained the night before and there were narrow but very high waterfalls all down the canyon that were gone later in the day. It was misting and we had the whole canyon to ourselves. When the sun came up we were blessed with seeing it through a sacred rock formation at the entrance to the canyon.
I can understand why my Native Indian ancestors hold this canyon as most sacred. We felt surrounded by the Spirits and I carry this feeling with me still today, many many years later. This will be where our ashes are returned to the earth as our Souls soar above, watching over our loved ones.
