Many of you will remember a hike I completed last October in southern Utah (link here). This year, a similar group of friends went into Grand Gulch, a marvelous little canyon located on Cedar Mesa. You can access the BLM web site for Grand Gulch here.
I am including many photos from this six-day hike but little details on specific locations. A hike in Grand Gulch requires knowledge of changing conditions, stamina, and proper gear. It is a long ways away from help. But for those who are prepared, look at what can be found here.
Some of the pictures are artistic or scenic, some are geologic with explanations, and many are archaeologic. I hope you enjoy this gallery of photos.
cut-off meanders (also known by their Spanish equivalent of rincon). Some of the cut-off meanders are older and thus perched higher within the canyon. Others were more recent and the cut-off bed was very close to modern stream level. This was one of the first ones we saw near Polly's Canyon.
