More sandstone magic in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument.  This is a small part of an exposed rock outcropping. I stumbled upon this rock face while hiking many years ago and searched far and wide to find again. You could easily walk right by if you weren’t paying attention, although the total face is easily 50-75’ across. Well, I finally found it. (Note: I don’t own a GPS because I don’t want to miss all the good things I’m not looking for.)

Mid afternoon soirée to Bowtie and Corona Arches outside of Moab, Utah.  Had the place to ourselves for over an hour; right place at the right time! Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film in original 3:2 format.

Hickman Natural Bridge is an easy quick day hike or simply a pleasant diversion on the way to the Navajo Knobs in Capitol Reef National Park.  Digital scan of Kodachrome 64 film.

Inquisitive wanderers will go left up Bell Canyon and into the center of the San Rafael Swell before dropping into Little Wild Horse Canyon. Here is where Little Wild Horse starts to get interesting on the way back to the trailhead.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film in the original 3:2 format.

This soaring concave wall hints at what is to come and is found just below the well photographed “crack” a little less than a quarter mile below the “Subway” in the left fork of North Creek in Zion National Park.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Druid Arch casts an imposing presence in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The round trip hike is 11 miles from the Elephant Hill trailhead; the creative hiker can make a 15 mile semi-loop hike and also visit Chesler Park and the Joint Trail. Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Approximately 5 miles south of Hite on Highway 95, there is a small bridge that most travelers don’t notice. This bridge crosses White Canyon below the foreboding hike known as the Black Hole. The canyon floor is still around 300 feet below the surrounding bench lands but may be entered a few miles down canyon for a great day hike to the Black Hole exit. Go prepared and make sure there is no rain in the forecast and that it did not rain the day before. White Canyon drains hundreds of square miles of the Bears Ears National Monument.

Desert varnish streaks the walls of the Paria River somewhere between Cottonwood Canyon Road and Hackberry Canyon. Go out and find some; you will be abundantly rewarded for your efforts.

These are the pools that stop further exploration while hiking the Subway from the bottom in Zion National Park, unless they happen to be filled with sand AND there is a log jammed in the back that you can climb up.  I have found this scenario twice in all my trips up the left fork. The downside is that the log is in the middle of a waterfall that is out of sight to the right. These pools are otherwise neck deep and offer no purchase from which to scramble further. The usual rappel spot when coming down canyon is actually a 12-15 foot belay down a slab just out of the frame to the right.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.
