I took this photograph of a family on a backpacking trip making their way through the Paria River Canyon, one of the most dramatic slot canyons in the Southwest. Usually the magic light that can transform an ordinary scene into something extraordinary occurs at dawn or dusk, but in slot canyons, it happens in the middle of the day. Here it reveals the amazing patterns of nature sculpted by water and time— a true wonderland for travelers of all ages, from all over the world. // Join @Nature_Valley in supporting the National Parks by hiking your local trails.
