Trail Report: Chimney Rock and Spring Canyon
|Desert Textures: Dead Tree and Badlands|
Most people turn around after they see chimney rock. However you can continue along the edge of the mesa for more than a mile and then reached the beginning of Spring Canyon. Traveling along the mesa, the view to the south includes distant Fruita and much closer gray and red badlands. These are pictured in my feature photograph along with a photogenic dead tree.
|Gray and Red Cliffs|
Overall, this is a good hike. Photographically I tried to focus on some details in the landscape. I did not find a really broad view that appealed to me. I liked the smaller scenes.
