To get to Secret Canyon, we had to take a Hummer and travel for miles in this red sand until we arrived at what looked like a tiny crack in the desert.
The ride with Slot Canyon Hummer Adventures out of Page was awesome. Quite the thrill.
Secret Canyon turns out to be quite magnificent. Over the next two weeks, I will continue sharing the photos I took during this photography class with Wilson Wyatt at Vermillion Cliffs.
We also had a naturalist, Eric Garton, from the Desert Botanical Gardens on the trip so I learned a great deal about plants, geology, and more.
Tomorrow I will share a photo of Horsehoe Bend, which is world famous for the severe bend of the Colorado River that snakes around the butte like a horsehoe. I had to get up at 3 am and drive and then hike in the dark to stand 18 inches from an 1,000 foot (304 meters) drop to the bottom without any guardrail or protection.
