Joan and I love this time of the year for canyon country. We’ll see some well-known favorites with few people and hike to some sites new to us.
It also means camping vs. backpacking many times, too.
These shorter canyons lend themselves well to winter day hikes. It’s not a time for mileage spent covering distance, but rather time spent in a place overall.
Seeing what we see.
And enjoying the landscape.
And the light never fails to make some interesting landscapes this time of the year.
And though we’ll never know the meaning for some of these images, some seem rather familiar even in our modern times.
We could live here twenty-years and never run out of things to see, immerse ourselves in more, and never run out of new places to learn about.
