Your pictures are awesome, although I bet no picture could really do this landscape justice. Those old rocks have so many stories to tell. Just beautiful.

What an awesome place! I want to go so bad, but Jim won't take our truck out there. I can only dream about it.

What a great slot canyon. You're really seeing and exploring the country, Gaelyn. I love your photos.

Great pictures. I particularly like the petroglyph shot. Think that's an ancient scribble or modern copy? After going to Mojave and reading about China Lake I want to explore the petroglyphs there as well (ON the MILITARY base but escorts can be arranged..)

Really fantastic. I would love to stand and play penny whistle in one of those "slots". How are the acoustics? What a wonder.

Those canyon walls have incredible shapes and colors. Thank you for posting the beautiful photos so that even those of us who didn't drive on that bumpy road or hike all those miles can enjoy the Buckskin Gulch too.

I love the southwest. One of the most beautiful places on earth I think.

What an unusual place! Your photos are fantastic in an area I'm sure was hard to photograph.

The only word I have for this post is WOW! What a place, the rocks are just incredible and as you say, amazing to think water can do that, but the softened lines prove it!
