White Pocket

A week ago, I wandered into the deserts of Arizona with my friend dawn2dawn to photograph White Pocket.  This is an area on the Arizona Strip that is difficult to get to and (sometimes) hard to find.  (We got lost a couple of times, and it’s very sandy and easy to get stuck).

Needless to say, we found it- Yeah!!!  I had never been there, so it was a new experience to see all the amazing formations that are there.  I could easily have spent a couple of days here.

Here’s a taste of what I found.

Oh, yes, mushrooms even grow in rocks…how interesting!!

This strata of sandstone is known to have dinosaur footprints and evidence of their existance.  I was asking outloud if there are any dinosaur footprints in this area, and I looked over and couldn’t believe my eyes!  I found not a dinosaur print, but a giant footprint of a sneaker!!  My foot is next to it for comparison (I wear a size 9).

I love these clouds!  IMG_7074 copy

 

Just as we left, a jackrabbit ran in front of us.  Before he did, though, I was able to get a good look at him.  Somehow I think it’s the Easter Bunny out for a training run.

Happy Easter, everyone!  Enjoy your adventures and be safe!  It’s a desert out there!!!
