Chasing Rainbows

Paria Canyon - Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness
Utah, USA

I’d been hiking to this location since I was about 19 years old. It’s a pretty simple hike, some 8-ish miles round trip, down the wash, up over the check board (not for the faint of heart, or afraid of heights crowd), plain and simply - it’s a nice late afternoon trip. The prior week I’d been out there, it had snowed. The week of, it rained. Everything was washed off. Nature had taken a bath. The sun had just gone down over the ridge, the light was perfect and so was the color.

“Finally!” I thought, “finally, an image that does this place justice!” I’m so ecstatic that the colors came out perfect, not only do I love color, I love when I can share it with others. It required pursuing the light & the land, and every now and then nature rocks. Literally.

See Ya On the Trail!
