Road Trip Day 4 White Canyon

There is a real good write up on this hike , describing much of the ruins:
https://www.gjhikes.com/2020/11/white-canyon.html

This is in the Natural Bridges National Monument, but you won't get any information on this hike from the rangers since these ruins are not published, and they can't adequately protect them.

We had gotten up about 1am to take Milky Way photos at Owachomo bridge, so we were a bit tired on this hike, as a result we didn't get to the Sphinx Rock Ruins.

None the less the hike is great and the ruins are fantastic.

NOTE: Many of the GPS coded photos have issues with the GPS coordinates, this seems to be due to the canyons blocking reception for the camera.
