|Grey Mud Pool marks the end of Rainbow Slot Canyon in southwestern Utah. During the heat of the day, this spooky place stayed cool and quiet.|
As I was hiking up a sandstone canyon to see if it would lead to the higher ground, I found that the walls became more narrow the farther I progressed. Eventually came to the very deep slot canyon which did not allow much light to pass through. It was like a cave: temperatures were at least 30° cooler.
After my eyes adjusted, I enjoyed exploring a little bit further in this slot canyon. The farther I went, the more beautiful it became. At the end of the canyon there was an abrupt cliff face. At the bottom of it lay a small pool of mud. The light was shining in and illuminating this small wonder.
