After an early morning rise in Moab, took a quick break next to the big sombrero to eat and change before heading to Monument Valley.

Back packed in and fished some of those, the most breath taking for me are the Minarets. We had snow in August!



Thousand Island Lake, on the way to the Minarets.



Take a bus from Mammoth down to Devil's Post Pile, then back pack in a couple of days and you're at the Minarets. Along the John Muir Trail, it's a phenomenal experience and not many hikers along that stretch of the trail which is a good thing!

Interesting.....
