    • Thanks. This is along the Paria River, about 1 mile south of Highway 89 between Kanab, Utah and Page Arizona

  2. What an interesting formation, and I like how you’ve given me a sense of the depth of the rock with a person in the middle. I suppose this was formed by water.

    • It was formed by water but I don’t think water has much an effect anymore. That is me at the bottom. I set my 10 second timer and rushed to get to the bottom!
