Starlight Cyn?
Here is another view of the same canyon latter in the day as I hiked northeast. The first was from my camp first thing in the morning.

There’s Castle Rock. Must be lower Hackberry Cyn.
That’s a very beautiful area.

Yep! Lower Hackberry. Your Turn! The first one I camped on the rim of the canyon just west of Yellow Rock 37°15'55.0"N 111°56'12.1"W. Then I hiked up to the top of Hog Eye and Sam Pollock and camped and explored. Then went down Sam Pollock and down Hackberry to my car. Never saw another person.

GSENM is right and off BTRd too. Lower Gulch much more in the E, S/E.

Some clues.
This trail was constructed by humans - partially. An old unpaved road leads to the TH. Some members of BCP were there in the near.

I think so too.
- the old unpaved road is Old Sheffield Rd.
- the trail is a horse/cattle trail and leads to the Escalante river, if you like to follow the river upwards
- the canyon mouth we've bypassed is Spencer canyon
- members of BCP were there in the near: @Nick, @slc_dan and @NateGeesaman - Moqui Madness Tour

Nice @Michael ! Would you like to post a new one, since we couldn't guess the previous?

Okay, here's a hint: The spring this is flowing from is named for an aspect of the quality of the water.

As one of the self-ordained Keepers of the Spot, let me remind you that the word "spot" includes other visuals besides the actual spot itself, making it at least somewhat guessable, though I did like the video, even though I didn't know what I was looking at, other than a spot of flowing water. Or did the spot actually consist of the spot the water was flowing across? :)

I'm looking for the name of the spring this water is flowing out of. Second hint: it's above 10,500' and below 11,000'.

I don’t think even with that hint people can guess it. It’s high on a mountain and windy with cool algae swirls, which is awesome, but we’re gonna need some sort of a horizon view or a larger macro scale view of some sort to be able to guess it.

That was what I was trying to say. We need more info in the photo. There are lots of springs.

The spring is at the base of the talus pile at the top.
