Nameless Washes

The desert country of the Southwest US has countless washes and small canyons, one leading to another until they reach their final destination. This small and probably nameless wash in Lathrop Canyon carries water, when it has it, on its way to the Colorado River a couple of miles away:

This wash may at first seem larger than it actually is.  The camera is at a normal person’s height  (well…. my height anyway).

All The Best,

    Yes! One of the delights of photographing wildflowers in Utah was to come upon just such lovely little spots in Canyonlands country. Thanks for including this in your portfolio.

    I was thrilled to see this “wash.” In my younger years I camped in the area several times. Once spent three week in Utah. Got to be in my top three.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Barbara, Canyonlands is one of my favorites (I guess it shows, by the number of images from there on the website).
