Little Colorado gorge
GRAND CANYON’S LARGEST TRIBUTARY
3,000+ FEET DEEP AND 56 MILES LONG
I love this section of the Little Colorado Gorge, The massive slab of rock to the left is a pretty commanding presence if you ever get the chance to walk past it.
These are challenging, remote areas, studded with quicksand, boulder fields and swift currents, in addition to all the standard desert/canyon obstacles. Many sections would mean certain death during any significant or sudden storm runoff. That just adds to the appeal for me, really. I’ve learned that you can work a few tales of bravado and quicksand into just about any conversation if you are shameless enough.
I’m going to share some of my favorite photos from the Little Colorado and Grand Canyon on this page. Both places are truly spectacular, particularly where they intersect. To me, they are are worth each risk and every hardship.
I use a Canon 6D, purchased new in 2013. It was Canon’s cheapest full-frame at the time — perhaps it still is.
17,000+ exposures, plenty of drops, hard miles, and even one submersion (right after very first photo at the top of this page was taken) I love the 6D even if I don’t take particularly good care of it. It’s the only full-frame I’ve tried so far.

Not sure if that is particularly useful or interesting information but I am having fun with the new template.
