Finding the Truth at False Kiva

Canyonlands National Park offers visitors sweeping vistas, interesting rock formations and less crowds (as compared to nearby Arches National Park). The Park consists of three areas: Island in the Sky, the Needles and the Maze.

False Kiva, along with Mesa Arch, was another area of the park I wanted to photograph. This is one of the "secrets" of the park and the location is not found anywhere in the park literature. The park rangers will not volunteer the location unless you ask them. It is a fragile area and they do not want hordes of tourists trampling all over the place. Earlier in the day I met Bob, a retiree traveling around the Southwest taking photos, and we agreed to hike out to find False Kiva (he attempted to find it the previous day but with no luck). After much scrambling we did find it and we were rewarded with an amazing view!

Equipment used:

Canon EOS 5D ,Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

Happy Travels!
