Poison Spring Canyon (1998)


May 29, 2013
I was asked about pictures from Poison Spring Canyon.

There are old slides from 1998 and around 2000 and digital images from 2013. The last ones are still undeveloped .

Here are the old scanned images with only littel comments.


Poison Spring Canyon - at the beginning near UT 95 inexprssively

A sand dune in background

Sediments shifted by wind

The grey cobbles are from the Henry Mountains

Cobbles and Navajo sandstone walls

A lot of green - water is not far away

A first spring - no trouble at this point

One of the larger springs - this one was running every time we visited the canyon

Oasis - we have seen frogs and ducks too. But not all the time.

Sometimes there are pools of standing water. Be careful - mud!

This was my failure!


Dirty work

A bad stretch farther down.

After a while the canyon dries up. At the latest it is dry a mile(?) west of the Black Jump and down to the River.

More water

This one didn't make it.

As soon as I have newer pictures I will show them.
