The People and Their Canyon — Images by kenne

For some the canyon
the people’s national park
to be shared with all.

For some the canyon
should have limited access
preserving nature.

For some the canyon
can be both shared and preserved
through naturalism.

Oh, blue bird, blue bird
High above the canyon floor
Looking gray and blue

Perching on a limb
Less blue against the blue sky
Doubtless a female.

Grand Canyon Panoramas (June 14, 2016) — Images by kenne

Grand, magnificent Canyon,
Where flows that wild, matchless stream,
That races its way through the mountains,
Where earth in its making is seen:
Where temple, cathedral, and castle,
Minaret, steeple, and dome,
Were carved by the mighty world builders,
From mountains on mountains of stone.

— from Beauties of the Grand Canyon” by William Wendell Riley

Nature And Hiking Companions Provide For A Trip Of A Lifetime   8 comments

Pat and Tom Markey on HWY 89 near the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument just south of Page, Arizona

We just returned from a trip to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, near Lake Powell and Page, Arizona. This remote and unspoiled monument is a geologic treasure in northern Arizona and southern Utah is a must see area containing Paria Plateau, Vermilion Cliffs, Coyote Buttes and Paria Canyon. Our planned trip, lead by Dean Perron, was to hike into The Wave in Coyote Buttes. Since it is difficult to not get plenty of beautiful photos of one of natures masterpieces, I have many I will be sharing in later posting.

Scenic view of the Vermilion Cliff along HWY 89.

The Vermilion Cliffs is one of the newest national monuments (established in 2000). This scenic region is marked only by a few signposts, remaining without any visitor facilities or other improvements — leaving it as a place where people explore by themselves. Administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), it remains a region where most tourists pass by in route to the Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell.
