I stopped here on the way up to Monument Valley for a pick up. I have been here before and I always love to see this place. We bought permits for this location and White Mesa Arch near Tonalea.

The wind was whipping there was a lack of clouds for contrast, but the sights of this canyon from the rim are spectacular. I will have to hike down into this canyon one day. I was pressed for time to get to my pick up, so we explored the edges and little canyon offshoots along the rim area.

A mini Bryce Canyon right here in AZ. The colors and the erosion are simply amazing. My friend that came along for the road trip was skeptical about this location as the area all around it is desolate, flat and ugly. We stopped at the "global rock" before, so his hopes weren't too high for the next stop. It's always a cool sight to see someone realize they are seeing a special place like this for the first time.

This area is too amazing to keep hidden for long. I hope it does not suffer the same fate as some other area and get abused. I almost wish they would make a tribal park out of this place. Once the "herd" gets wind of this, it will overrun fast. I can see this become the freak show like Horseshoe Bend. :( :( :(

Gotta love this place!
