White Pocket Is Simply Amazing. First Of 3 Posts.

I’ve been out there 4 or 5 times but the light approaching sunset was almost-perfect this time.  White Pocket is an area in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Northern Arizona. It’s a difficult drive on sandy roads to get there, but well worth the struggle.  One vehicle that only had 2-wheel drive got stuck in the sand and was only rescued when a Jeep Wrangler with a winch showed up and saved this couple a large towing bill.

Never Going Back To Toroweap

For the second time in two trips, I and some friends encounter vehicle issues at the very remote Toroweap section of Grand Canyon National Park. The park service ranger told us it would cost 800 to $1,000 to get towed out of there. My Ford Ranger just stopped running 55 miles from the nearest paved road. My friend’s Subaru got a flat tire so we had to hike the last 3 miles to get to the edge. It was all worth it as the photos show.  My Ranger had a fuel pump issue but Ranger Todd found in the manual that there is a fuel pump reset switch under the passenger side dash.

Aspen Tree Autumn Colors-Peak Color

Aspen trees were at full color at Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim last week.  Paradoxically, nearby aspens were past peak. Those images to follow soon.

On The Road To the Grand Canyon

A recent drive to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim revealed some sights not normally associated with The Grand Canyon. Like wildlife, Aspens and Autumn Colors.

Blurred Aspens

Using In-Camera techniques, I photographed these past-peak color aspens while moving the camera slightly to achieve a blurred, ethereal look.
