The Canyon – Light & Shadow

Our family has been spending this past week doing some exploring and hiking in our area.  Yesterday we chose a spot a friend had told us about.  It is a long canyon that starts out wide and open, but soon narrows down and in places becomes cave-like, with low ceilings and dark passageways.  At times it feels scary, as you walk under jutting out rocks…and hope that they don’t collapse on your head!  This is an area that does experience earthquakes, and we could see piles of rocks in places where collapses had obviously occurred.  So we were careful and walked quietly! 🙂

Despite the slight sense of danger, the place was gorgeous!  The caves were spectacular, with the play of light and shadow on the cave walls and ground, which is a photographer’s dream!

Here are some of the photos from the canyon…

As we were leaving the canyon, this was the view.  A sacred spot up on top of the mountain as the sun set.
