Today I returned to yesterday’s little canyon but approached from a different direction. Thus, I was on the opposite side of the dry creek bed and discovered I hadn’t seen half of what was there.01canyon-a Our first image is that gash from the other direction. The rest are just various angles of this redrock canyon.03canyon-b I decided to approach from a closed road that you can see in yesterday’s satellite photo where it runs at an angle north of the canyon carved as much by water as by motocross wheels. The last image didn’t turn out as I had hoped; somehow the grass and other foliage tends to obscure the scale of things.04canyon-c However, this time I used my big camera, so I’m not going to get much better than this. It’s rare to see this much exposed sandstone underlayer in any one place in this part of the country.
