:drool: The color and lines of the lower half are beckoning me in. Like a half opened shell, or a promise of something precious.

It's absolutely stunning. Well done. And you are doing very well not revealing it's location. I have seen many unique places almost destroyed be the people's ignorance and I don't know hate? Anyway an amazing capture!

Really nice James. I can tell by the sandstone textures where this one was taken. I can agree. I have seen much vandalism just in the 3 years I have visited the southwest. I believe the worst one to date was childrens foot prints inside of the anasazi grainary and the whole wall was pushed out and "ruined". I am in complete disbelief of the disrespect people have toward these places.

During the same trip that this photo was taken on, I came across a slot that had been vandalized by someone (most likely someone's kids left unsupervised). Someone had taken a rock and - every few meters for the entire length of the slot - scratched a vivid arrow pointing up-canyon in the soft sandstone walls. Seeing such pointless vandalism infuriated me. Seriously, wtf is the point of scratching an arrow in a canyon wall that does not fork? I can at least see some logic behind an initial or a name (not that it makes it okay), but a fucking arrow? This person had to be brain damaged. Retarded. Something! Someone had to drive miles and miles on a back road, known where to find this natural treasure, hiked all the way out to it, then had enough disregard for their surroundings to ruin it for hundreds - maybe thousands - of people to follow. :angered: At least time will heal such marks in a slot canyon. It's quite a different story for historic ruins like you were mentioning earlier.

That is really retarded. Makes you wonder whay they put the effort to get out there to begin with. To destroy it? WTF. I agree with you fully. It makes me furious!

Looks like Escalante. . .Spooky? The nubby-looking things on the walls seem like that. Could be Brimstone. Not sure.

Cool shot, in any case. Good luck!

With you living in Utah and having visited the Escalante region, you likely know exactly where this is. :) Forgive me for the cryptic answer. I've seen too much vandalism and disrespect in canyons whose locations/identities have been proliferated. If you want to know for sure, feel free to give me a note. Thanks for checking it out!

Indeed, Escalante and surrounding areas have some of the most incredible scenery in the world, but some of the least protection. It's always saddening to me when I see something of such beauty harmed by man.
