If you are a Rim-to-Rim hiker you would be ever so grateful to have a Rim-to-Rim driver! Ann knows that she can count on Greg to get her to one rim and pick her up 23.9 miles later at the end of the hike. This year Ann, Brian and Andy started on the North Rim and hiked south. They all spent the night at Jacob's Lake before Greg dropped them off and then he drove to the South Rim. Between rims he took some photographs that he is sharing.
Variously described as 'a geological ice cream sundae melting in the sun', a 'fantasy landscape', 'twisted icing on a cake' or 'alien planet', White Pocket is a bucket list location for many photographers. It is located in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument near the Arizona/Utah border. It is not an easy location to reach but the heaving and dipping rock formations are worth every bump in the road to get there. Enjoy the images shared by five photographers. They even spent a very cold night in sub-freezing temperatures to capture an image of the Milky Way!
A very special thanks is given to the excellent photographers who made the trip, including a night in very cold temperatures, and then shared their best.
