White Pockets
April 23, 2013

The White Pockets area was where I wanted to hike the most and was glad to find someone who would take me there.  When South Coyotte Buttes got added on to the day, I felt like the luckiest lady on earth.  This area is deeper into the Paria Plateau and even wilder  getting to then where we spent the morning.  The colors were spectacular as was the landscape.  This is an area considered to be a photographers dream place to shoot.  It was a fun place to play which the guide encouraged, as long as it was not a fragile section.  So play I did!  The whole afternoon, I saw one fellow to talk to and a couple off in the distance.  After hiking the White Pockets, we were back to that wild and crazy ride back over big rocks, through sand, around roots.  I'm sure I smiled from ear to ear all day.  It was hard not to.  Like all wonderful hikes I do, I relived today when I laid in bed and closed my eyes. Now it's time to dream!

  1. How ancient are these rocks!!!!
    I love the shot of the layers.
    Did the guide take the shots of you or did you have to a fast athletic sprint after setting the timer?

    1. Helen, I added another photo at the bottom of this post that tells the story about the White Pocket area. Just click on the photo to make it big so you can read it. The guide took my photos for me.
