Arizona is such an incredibly diverse and special place. We get many visitors to our paradise home that are flabbergasted by the fact that there is more here than howling, desolate desert, cattle skulls, and dirt roads. We do have those things, but they serve only as the backdrop for our state’s limitless beauty and wonder.

Sycamore Canyon is one of those places. This 20-mile long gash in the Earth leads off the Colorado Plateau into the Verde Valley near Sedona, a testament to the geologic processes that have shaped the area like an artists brush. Pictured here are 500-foot sheer walls of basalt, rock born of lava flowing over the surface. Subterranean cave collapse gave flowing water the ability to carve this wonder into the landscape, and the rest is history.

Although the falls were not running this time (water flowing above ground is fleeting in the southwest), the scenes here are simply gorgeous. Rolling pine forests, towering 200 year-old sycamore trees, hooting owls, bellowing frogs, and peace. This is but a small portion of the canyon, which remains one of the most rugged wildernesses in the lower 48. #firefoodadventure https://instagr.am/p/CADbeCSJ8jo/

One of the coolest scenes in all of #grandcanyon, the confluence of the Little Colorado River which flows in from the east to big brother Colorado River. The color of the water is due to numerous natural springs that contain high amounts of calcium and alumina-silicate minerals, giving the water its special turquoise color.
The LCR is essentially made from these underground springs, as it grows from an underground aquifer, to a small trickle, to a roaring, rushing river capable of carving canyons. Come explore the LCR on our LCR/Beamer/Tanner Backpacking tour this fall! https://instagr.am/p/B_nNDNMpMql/

Thank you Mother Earth for giving us scenes like this. Somehow, I’m compelled to think that you’ve taken measures to heal yourself right now. I hope that when you are feeling better, the beings you allow to exist on your surface will begin to treat you like the special, unique, and totally irreplaceable thing you are. Happy Earth day from Canyons and Chefs!

This photo was taken from UT 95, catching the La Sal mountains behind the Cockscomb…notice the sweet grabem on the middle! https://instagr.am/p/B_SpPN3J3ul/

This is one of my favorite places on Earth. This whole place is just such a mindeffer. Giant faults, massive mountains, deep valleys, and howling wilderness beyond imagination. The first time here is something you will surely never forget. Where is it, you ask? Give a follow and find out! https://instagr.am/p/B_Iyt6oJ71_/

Scrambled up a cliff to get a glimpse of the San Juan River and Monument Valley…not disappointed….We’re looking down over the Goosenecks (an awesome and less-crowded alternative to Horseshoe Bend) and out to the Mittens and Merrick Butte in Monument Valley https://instagr.am/p/B-99IDOpJ7v/

In these strange times, the old, tired cliches that we used to get sick of now seem to pick us up, guide us, and inspire us. “Reach for the sky”, they said, “the night is darkest before the dawn” they said, “Hope springs eternal” they said. The photo of this lone Saguaro (taken near @saguaronationalpark, circa 2012) stretching its 200 year-old arms into the sky seems appropriate to me now, more so than ever before.
You see, Saguaros are not only the symbol of the desert, but are symbols of eternal vigilance, overcoming the most hostile conditions to flourish as something incredibly beautiful and unique. Saguaros are now the symbol for the human race. We will overcome. We will flourish. We will be the light in the darkness. We are the symbols of the hostile, desolate desert. #hope https://instagr.am/p/B-saATspjfU/
