On Sunday morning I was up shortly before sunrise and quickly taking down camp so I could get an early start on the hike. I wasn’t planning on taking any photos at sunrise, but when I saw the sky start to light up I quickly grabbed my camera out of the Jeep and ran over to the nearest outcrop of sandstone above my camp. I’m glad that I did!
The distant cliffs were lit up intensely for just a moment and I’m glad I was able to catch it.
When I reached the Collins Canyon trailhead after a short drive, the sun broke through the clouds briefly. After this I wouldn’t see sunlight again until I was hiking back.
There were plenty of pictographs to be found along the way.
I spotted these two granaries high above the wash and managed to find a way up to them.
A reflection of The Narrows in a pool of water just beyond the small slot.
Hiking back up along a large dryfall in Collins Canyon when the overcast sky finally started to clear up.
I also visited an old cowboy camp that had many relics left over from the early 1900’s.
