Cool Canyons

It was a pleasant walk with families along the canyon floor.   At the very bottom of the canyon, water flowed, and vegetation grew in abundance.  Brice only receives 3-7 inches of rain per year, so it is yet, another amazing phenomenon, as the water is absorbed by the great rock formations and seeps down through the walls and eventually into the streams or along the walls of the canyons (in some areas).  

Again, there was little time to sketch, as we walked and hiked through out the area, but it was great fun to take a lot of photos.  This is a favorite of mine... taken by my husband.  The greenness of the water is totally a reflection of the vegetation.... but I love the feeling that it gives....so serene.

I hope that your day is serene.
