      Yes Carmen, been busy having fun.
      How are you my friend

        All good here Mak – came home to heat, after the cold ‘down under’ but it’s cooler today and more like Fall weather! You have been behaving then, eh?
        I read through the thread that Ark has linked to. I’d say you’ve taken some lessons from the ‘master’ himself. . ha, ha! Charm personified!

    Emergency Exit because of flash floods?

    First thought from first picture: these are flash flood channels. Be careful and get out at the first sniff of upstream rain. And that can be a problem if the rain occurs out of sight.

    My second thought was if you can find fossils in the exposed sandstone. The same kind of topography if you hit a shale bed might get your name forever etched in paleontology with some remarkable discovery.

    My third thought was I wondered how hot it gets in the channel?

    And my fourth thought was I’m glad there are exit signs posted!

      That is always my thought too. It would be a really good find.
      The channel doesn’t get so hot. The side walls are high enough to provide shade most of the day.
      That exit sign is in only one place and I don’t know how easy it would be to take it though

    Gorgeous. You’ve reminded me that I was supposed to be out hiking with my sister in the Utah desert this week, but we cancelled it due to the tendonitis in my knee. My knee’s better, though, so we’re thinking of doing it in the spring.

    I’m jealous. 馃檪


  7. Always enjoy your photo post Mak 馃檪 glad you made the most of your exped.

  9. Great pictures, Noel. So glad you’re having fun. 馃檪


  10. Absolutely stunning photographs mak, I envy you. I know some people who live in Utah, and their nearby canyons often have very dangerous flash floods out of the blue. Enjoy yourself and be careful! *smiles*

      how is it in the clouds? Hot here with little cloud cover.
      Last year some students died in flash floods in the same place, they no longer allow anyone in during the rainy season.

      • Ah, that’s sad, a shame they died for the caution to be put in place, but then that’s how these things go I guess.

        I’m so slow at getting back on here, so pardon the late reply – it was sunny and warm and yes, a little cloud cover here also, and now…it is dark! Which is also nice, be you on the ground, or on a Cloud. *smiles*.
