Labyrinth Canyon

Our last day was going to be a short one, so we took our time breaking camp to savor the morning sun on the walls of Labyrinth Canyon.

Years ago we hiked to Upheaval Dome in the Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands. It's the eroded remains of an ancient (millions of years ago) meteor impact.

Soda Springs Basin, Canyonlands NP

The bright sun gave us beautiful warm light as we headed down the north side of Murphy Hogback. All of Soda Springs Basin lay before us with Candlestick Tower watching as we began our day.


The dawn brought us another cloudy morning. We said goodbye to the items the wind blew away during the night, packed up camp, and set off. The morning was easy-going -- the road today was mostly smooth dirt. And by now the extraordinariness of the landscape had settled into the expected. You still saw as many towers, hoodoos, and vistas, but after a night in their company they became more ordinary. To gawk at them would be unseemly -- they belong here.
