  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Hurricane Valley is a large swath of land including private land and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land that is located more or less Between highways 59 and SR9. Visitors traveling north from the small city of LaVerkin will pass it as they make their way to Zion National Park. It’s a land of desert washes, cactus, sagebrush, coyotes, and the Virgin River Gorge. On this day it was drenched by a powerful and fast moving storm.

Photography Tips

This shot was pure luck. I was photographing the dark sheet of rain as a storm moved through. I always shoot with a two second shutter delay and lightning struck just as the shutter opened.
