Exploring The Esplanade

The Hades Site | Veterans Day Weekend
Thursday – Sunday, November 8-11, 2018

Over the past couple of years I have been trying to spend a long weekend during the late fall searching for Grand Canyon Polychrome Pictographs on the Esplanade in the Grand Canyon. This year Diane and I met up with our friend Jerry and went on a three day – two night backpacking trip in search of the Hades Site. Diane and I left after work on Wednesday evening and spent the night in St. George so we could see if the ancient mug I found earlier this year was on display yet. Unfortunately, it was not on display when we stopped by the BLM Visitor Center on Thursday morning since it’s apparently in Cedar City right now for some reason, but at least we were able to sleep in later and not have to drive very far this morning.

Yant Flat

Saturday, April 13, 2013

I was originally planning on spending the entire weekend camping, exploring and photographing the Yant Flat area near St. George. I was going to be meeting up with my friend Jens from Germany and was also hoping to photograph a sunset and sunrise at the Candy Cliffs while I was there. Due to a few last minute changes in my plans, I only ended up spending a few hours on Saturday hiking around the area with Jens, so I will definitely have to return again in the future for some better photos.
