The picture below shows where the narrows begin. This land was laid down as sheets of mud in the bottom of some vast lake where ancient animals roamed.
Visitors today see several mountain-sized ridges of sandstone, limestone and mudstone of various colors.
The ridges have been steeply tilted up...some nearly verticle.
Water collected in small basins are called "tanks" . The picture above is an example of a tank.
Lovell Wash cut through the ridges, creating spectacular narrows that are about 500 yards long, hundreds of feet deep and only a few feet wide. In many places you can touch the walls on both sides.
|Steve led us up, down and all around to the top of a cliff overlooking Lovell Wash. There are wide spots here that can be used for parking. What a magnificent view!|
|This is a view of the narrows.|

Another great day...enjoying the natural beauty all around us AND the fellowship of great people too.
Thanks for stopping by...
Life is good!
Y'all come back!
