20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
"White Trees/Stained Cliffs"

On the road south of Hanksville Utah - On one week road trip we were headed south towards the Valley of The Gods when we encountered a fairly narrow gorge of Red Cliffs, stained by minerals washing down them from above. This area also had the classic white trees which provided contrast. My friends jumped out and headed to massive red buttes on the east side of the road but I was drawn to the west side of the road that had a smaller stained butte with whites trees and boulders in the foreground.
