Description

I spent two weeks hiking in Utah and Nevada. One of my destinations was Valley of the Fire, Nevada. After hiking all of the main trails, I decided to do some off-trail exploring, staying on bare-rock, and down drainages to avoid disturbing any cryptobiotic soils. I stumbled across this very interesting cave, with and arch inside of it. I waited until reflected light lit up the inside of this alcove to take this image. This is the most interesting location I have ever found during an exploratory hike in a new location.
