Yesterday we went back to Canyonlands to do the Neck Springs Trail and Mesa Arch Trail. The following pictures are from the Neck Springs Trail. What a great walk! Started off in the canyon and ended up on the plateau. We finally saw a couple of deer. The critters have been hiding from us.

|Hill is covered with cryptogam. Living organisms that help keep the soil in place.|
|Note the "cairns" (rock piles). This is how many of the trails are marked.|
|Looking down on the Schafer Trail 4x4 road. We took this back to Moab last time we were here. Fun!|
