There is something deceiving about this photograph. Between the sandstone hill in the near distance and where I am standing is a precipitously deep narrow slot canyon called White Canyon. Looking out across the landscape the canyon is invisible. In fact, if you know, you can see the top of the far wall of the canyon as a low ridge of yellow colored sandstone in the mid-distance. So what would seem to be a short hike to the hills, turns out to be virtually impossible. Sometimes this is like many things in life. Things are not as they appear and what seems easy is in fact, impossible, just as a short hike towards the hill will reveal.
