Figuring out the path
Figuring out where to go when walking around in sandstone maze can be an extraordinary challenge. There do not seem to be any discernible pathways through the maze of rock. One of the rules of walking in an area like this is simple. It is much easier to go up the rock than it is to come down. It is not usual to find yourself sitting down and trying to keep from slipping off of a steep pitch that you just easily walked up. It is a temptation to walk along the ridges, only to find out that there are deep canyons blocking your way. All this time, you need to remember not to slip. Now that I think about it, everything about the sandstone is a lot like life itself.
