Tall Tales From The Field

Frozen In Time- Vermilion Cliffs National Monument’s White Pocket


Constant erosion from wind and water over the last 200 million years have produced some sandstone oddities that are worth the effort to drive to. White Pocket is about 20 miles from any paved road so few venture to it. The Vermilion Cliffs  National Monument is a place that deserves protection. See all my photos at Dawn2Dawn Photography

  3. One would think photos of barren rock should look bleak and uninviting – these are invitingly beautiful.
