It is difficult for me to believe it has been seven and a half years since I first saw Red Canyon in the Dixie National Forest of Utah but it has been that long. The first time I saw it I was blown away by the red rocks and the hoodoos against the deep green of the pines. This view is seen right from the road.
I took this image on my first trip there with my old Nikon D70 and the kit lens which was an 18-70mm. I was on my way to Bryce Canyon and just had to stop and take some images. I loved those red rocks against the blue sky with the fluffy clouds. I find that if I look at this image long enough the clouds will appear to move.
Butch Cassidy hid out in these canyons when he thought he had killed a man in a fight over a woman. He hadn’t killed the man, he had just knocked him out. The area where he hid is now called Cassidy Trail.
Life is good.
