May 15

Early light

Waiting for the sun

What now?

Cliffrose (?)

The way up

Getting closer to the top


Nice walking

Heading on up

Working our way

Up another layer

Let them know you were here

Nice formation

Across the top

Where is the trail?

Cactus garden

Up and over some  more


Midget Faded Rattlesnake

We are headed for the formation

Telephoto compresses space, still far away

Getting closer as is the days end

Towering rock formation

Shade for the packs

Names like , Navajo, Wingate, Kayenta

A view to the east

La Sal Mountains (Mount Tukuhnikivatz)

Kissing sphinxes

Sun goes down

Photograph of a hiker

The light fades

The night sky
