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.

The river, meandering below, reflects the deep blues of the sky above as the first rays of the morning sun paint the distant canyon wall in hues of gold and red.

This past June I spent a day hiking up and down the length of the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park in search of an "ah ha" moment. These are the moments that take your breath away. I was looking for not only a stunning location, but I wanted a contrast of color and light. The Virgin [...]
