Lightning Storm at the Grand Canyon

Next, having some clouds definitely helps, but we still need a gap [...]

Early Morning Light in Slickhorn Canyon

Located far downstream of the tiny town of Mexican Hat, Utah, on the San Juan River is  Slickhorn Canyon.  Located almost in the middle-of-nowhere, and not far from where the San Juan flows into Lake Powell, Slickhorn is only accessible via a very long backpacking trip, or by rafting the San Juan. I arrived at Slickhorn via raft 3 days after [...]
