All the the guesses so far are in the generally correct area, generally speaking.

Ok. I am assuming no one knows where that pic is from, it is Little Bridge Canyon.

Here is a new one, that should be really easy. An old scan of a 35mm slide, taken 38 years ago today. That's my wife Nancy on our honeymoon, her 1st backpacking trip.

I guess that's a silly question. Just upstream from Coyote Gulch.

In 1980 it was 18' higher than when we were there in 1982, so that is probably the high water mark you see, and in 1983 it was 5' higher than that, when they had to use plywood to keep the water from topping the dam.

i wasn't sure how difficult this spot would be, with all the people here who quickly guess all the places i've never heard of. this spot is administered by the national park service.

is it in the Needles District of Canyonlands? It doesn't look like the Needles, but it if it isn't that and it has to be east of the Colorado and administered by the NPS then it's gonna have to be Hovenweep or Natural Bridges neither of which also look right.
