Take a guess at which one of the three, Titans, and your up! That was quick!
Hm.... Not Upper Paria, it would have water flowing, so now I have 50/50 chance. I'm guessing Sheep Creek.
The photos of Upper Hackberry and Sheep Creek look very similar.

Spot on! Likely about 1 mile or so from the Paria. UHC and Sheep Cr really do look similar. I was surprised just how grand Paria is upstream from the junction. With spectacular panels. Several not in Kelsey nor anywhere that I am aware of.
When friends and I did a ten day Paria/Hackberry/side slot exploration loop, it turned out to be much more diverse awesome than I expected

This game has gotten very far out of my league recently. Reminds me a bit of Oak Creek, but I'm nearly certain that's not it.

it definitely has a Capitol Reef / Burr Trail look to it. the red/yellow sandstone looks a lot like around Pleasant Creek but I could also see how this is something around the Gulch

I would say it looks to be by the circle cliffs... But is that a pile of debris marking a "non-trail"?
I am not going to venture a true guess. I am too sporadic being online these days.

Now was just wondering if this could be in the area on the NE side of the Escalante Area and near where the canyons of Horse, Wolverine, Little Death Hallow, or Silver Falls Canyons come out on their east side. Here there are these cliffs in the area that do look somewhat like this and it is a deserty area down low. At the top of these canyons it broadens out into these deserty area with these fabulous cliffs above which in places can be quite broken up.

@Ugly - good eye, Rick is "off trail" in a drainage. Circle cliffs, yes, but it says Circle Cliffs in so many areas on my Grand staircase / CRNP map. I'm looking for the name of a canyon, we are standing in the upper end of that canyon.

@Kmatjhwy - you clearly recognize the kind of cliffs, look further north.
@regehr was close with one of the guesses
@Jackson - guess too far north
@John Morrow - yes, indeed looking for petrified wood, but Meeks Mesa is too far north.

Egg? regehr was really close I think with one of the guesses
Yes, indeed Egg Canyon, a side canyon to The Gulch (which stretches over a very long area in Grand Staircase). Should we pass it to @regehr then?

@regehr has been to Egg Canyon, we actually met him & family for a beer later that same day. But we had slightly different entry points into the canyon.

Here's a wider view of Egg Canyon, the previous photo was part of the cliff on the right side.

Another view of this arch. Name the arch or canyon. Blurring is not intentional, my phone camera can't focus.
