Flight of the Phoenix


Flight of the Phoenix

from 299.00

I took this photo on my Spring 2014 backpacking trip to the Colorado Plateau. This is a canyon that I've returned to 4 years in a row. At the end of the canyon is a large alcove with several large potholes that have eroded through, creating the two holes in the ceiling. 

It is common to see canyoneers toss a rope out of the lower hole, then rappel into the pool of water below. I took this photo in the morning when the alcove is lit by strong reflected light. One of the advantages to backpacking in a location like this is that you have the place to yourself all through the morning.

If you would like to know more of the story behind this photo, please watch my video journal at the bottom of this page. It was filmed the day that I took this photo.
