Thanks Jethro! That is Cassidy Arch in the upper right. It was a beautiful hike to the arch as that was our destination. It was very green there too.. much more than usual so it was an added bonus!

Magnificent photo Ben !! Now that's what I call a landscape..I haven't researched the history of 'The Reef'..I'm assuming that this was the ocean bed at sometime ;>)

Thanks so much Jim! I appreciate the great comments! It's a pretty amazing area. Right across the street from this area it is more like a rolling dome. Pretty interesting really.

That's some pretty wild looking country, Ben, and a great shot of it.

Isn't that park an amazing place? Really nice capture, Ben. Looks like you did some real climbing to get this shot! Regards, Rob

Great picture, I was very disappointed when access to this part of the park was closed for construction when I visited this past summer. Like.
