A Secret Slot Canyon (P31)

A Secret Slot Canyon (P31)

One of my all time favorite images. It took us over 10 years of exploring to find this location. Only a couple people knew of its existance when we started looking for it and none of them were willing to disclose its location - and with good reason. It was a pure accident and a stroke of luck when we stumbled across this extremely narrow and short slot canyon. It was so narrow that we would walk in sideways and we'd be scraping on both the front and back walls at the same time. We also had to step over rattlesnakes to get in here. A fact we didn't realize until we were coming out! This light happens only a certain time of day and at a certain time of the year. It is an optical illusion. The large swirl in the lower left that looks like it swings out at you is actually going away from you. It takes a while to see it. Simply one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in nature.
