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.
Paw Hole is an area at South Coyote Buttes that is part of Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Arizona. Its unusual sandstone rock formations are a photographer’s playland.
These rocks defy modern day physics. I couldn’t believe that these rocks at Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Northern Arizona stay upright. But I figured I better help!
The location for these clay beds is very close to my formerly somewhat secret spot of colorful clay beds.
I spent a couple of days last week traveling in Northern Arizona around the Vermilion Cliffs and Marble Canyon areas. Once again, I was amazed by the Arizona Skies as some scattered storm systems permeated the landscape. I just couldn’t keep my camera down so I put together a slide show of the Arizona Skies along with a song by The Orb called Little Fluffy Clouds. The music fits as this hippie chic voices over how she feels about the Arizona Skies. Music can be purchased at iTunes If you don’t want to hear the music and view the pics at your own pace, Click here.

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
Buckskin Gulch along the Arizona/Utah border is the longest slot canyon in the United States. I’ve never completed the whole thing but just a few miles into this abyss is enough to gather some good images. I dragged some friends along who made for some pretty good models(No Royalties Due) and for a good sense of scale. It’s about 13 miles and ends at the Paria River which together make a great backpacking trip.
