Narrow Places and Open Spaces

The rocky landscape of Southern Utah contains many slot canyons, from generously wide to claustrophobically narrow.  This slot canyon, along the White Rim Trail and near the Green River, is a favorite spot for mountain bikers to cool off in.

It looks brown to me, and I thought I was going color blind, but Wikipedia tells me it actually carries more silt than the Colorado River.

All The Best,
