Water Canyon

This is a great canyon to hike through and canyoneer out. It is also in polygamist country. When hiking up this trail, we passed a group of angelic blonde girls being taught a lesson on the indigenous people. They all had their hair parted in the center with long braids running down past their shoulders, ending in feathers. Their dress, however, was that of a pioneer woman. Their usual. I could imagine that they were little white settlers that had been very recently taken in by a local tribe.
If only I'd had the guts to photograph that little scene, but I didn't want to offend.
At the end of our hike, we came upon a long narrow seasonal waterfall. (It is the narrow ribbon of white just left of center in the photograph.)
