Sandstone Fins

December 20, 2008

Hey everybody,

Here are some photographs from tonight’s sunset. These shots were taken on Poison Spider Mesa or High Speed Mesa. I’m a bit confused, as I have two books that seem to disagree about the name. This location can only be reached via a not so remote, but very rough 4wd track that was pretty difficult due to ice. Since I still feel like I’m too young to die, I parked the truck and walked the last mile or so. I really love these sandstone fins, and I think the viewpoint I hiked to is definitely one of the more impressive views I have yet to see.
