This is the classic spot that many photographers go to take the often-shot, rock reflected in puddle. You know the one, right? Well, Ok, maybe not by description, but you’d recognize it if you saw it. In fact, I’d show you my own version of it, except there wasn’t any water there. It’s a mild to moderate multi-mile hike. On my one trip, I was making the hike by myself, and was there in the late afternoon. For awhile, there was nobody else around; REAL solitude. I left the area just before sunset. By the time I got to my truck, it was dark. I was thankful that I was able to drive into Kanab, Utah for a late night meal. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant, but they were nice enough to allow me in five minutes after their official closing time. After dinner, I drove to Bryce Canyon to sleep and catch the sunrise.
