Crystal River along CO-133

I stopped to photograph Hayes Creek Falls along Colorado-133 (south of Carbondale, just west of Mount Sopris). Water was barely trickling over the Falls, so I crossed CO-133 and shot a few bulb exposures of the water flowing around the rocks in the Crystal River. Hoping this area recovers from drought and fire season.

Meltwater from Glaciers on Rainier

After a quick hike from the White River camping area to Sunrise on Mt. Rainier, I used a Neutral Density filter to take a bulb exposure panorama of the grey meltwater of the White River on my way out of the park.

Aravaipa River Panorama

While the rest of my group hiked up the river, I spent about half an hour standing knee-deep in water photographing ripples and a small rapid in the Aravaipa River. Here is one of my favorite angles on the water and rocks.

Aravaipa Canyon River

Last weekend, I took a day trip to the Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness to hike up the first few miles of the 11-mile Aravaipa Canyon. Cottonwoods, cat tails, and reeds line the water as it snakes through the surrounding saguaro cacti and ocotillo of the Sonoran Desert, and 1,000-foot canyon walls rise up on either side of the lush riparian area. Although conglomerate and volcanic rocks form the cliff walls, from a distance this part of southern Arizona reminds me of the Canyonlands and Zion.
