Description

On the White Rim Trail, overlooking Shafer Canyon, I found this juniper trunk pointing back toward the route I had just traveled. In July, with daytime temps soaring well above 105 degrees, I found solitude throughout the area, and this lone juniper seemed to call out to the majesty around me like a beacon. Despite this being mid-day, the atmospheric conditions included a rain forecast, and the thick cumulus clouds did not disappoint in providing texture to the sky, and patterns of shade in the canyon below.
