Buckskin Gulch Slot Canyon near the Confluence with Paria Canyon, Southern Utah

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I've taken this photo during my 3-day backpacking trip in April 2012 through Buckskin Gulch and Paria Canyon, Arizona. Our group of 8 backpackers stayed two nights in this spectacular place full of color and astonishing terrain. Red cliffs of the canyon were contrasting with blue skies and lusheous greenery of trees. This was very tranquil and relaxing area. I walked for a few miles alone and barefoot in the middle of the river one of evenings... It was one of the calmest and happiest moments ever...
