"Zebra Slot Canyon Downstream View"
September 2012, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Utah
This image is of the same slot canyon in my previous posting. The only difference is that I'm facing the other direction, and there is more sunlight reaching the depths of the canyon. Notice how smooth the canyon walls are in this down-canyon view. The previous image was shot looking up-canyon. Countless flash floods have passed through Zebra, acting as nature's sandpaper as they exquisitely massaged the canyon walls on their journey. The look upstream is quite different, with sharp edges replacing rounded ones.
