In October 2015 I had booked on a trip to the Grand Canyon and decided to take a week or so before to discover other parts of the area. I started at Bryce Canyon and walked down - and up very slowly, the altitude you know....Red Rock Canyon followed on the way to Kanab - the extraordinary eroding Hoodoos, first as castles when they have lost their cap of dolomite and at the base - just sand........
As I drove to Kanab along route 89 I thought the red rock couldn’t be bettered but various trips out of Kanab corrected me. Kanab Canyon, White Pocket and other wonders every day. The fact that I lost my telephone
which contained over 800 images just didn’t matter - I’d uploaded everything on to DropBox to await my arrival home!
And then to the Grand Canyon and Blue Mesa and the Fossil Forest etc. all just amazing. I was lucky enough to see the Grand Canyon around mid-day - without all those structure-hiding black shadows - I felt myself getting rather cross as the sun moved on and blue darkness covered the mesas and my favourite blue green of the bright angel shale was lost!
All in all a glorious trip and a source of huge inspiration along with the Jurassic Coast.
