Red Canyon

images from Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest, Utah, February 2010





Driving Hwy. 12 east towards Bryce Canyon, below the fog-cloud layer, the striking reds of Red Canyon pile gorgons on top of cliffs, like a shaman throwing needles at the hills. Red points stitching the sky. Shaman dancing from pinnacle to pinnacle like a raven in the snow.

How is it for you, Art, alone in this amazing wilderness? I take it you are alone.

Maybe you need to be alone to capture these extraordinary sights. They are wonderful.

Mostly alone, and liking it that way. I do some of my best thinking when traveling alone in the wild places of the world.

The silence is something I need, periodically, to clear the mind. The mind goes silent and the better part of oneself comes forward.
