Waves of Stone

Paria Canyon - Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness
Utah, USA

“This time”, I thought, “this time.”

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 feint 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 requires pursuing the light & the land, and every now and then nature rocks.  Literally.

See Ya On the Trail!
