We woke to a peaceful morning on the second day of our hike in Grand Gulch. Quiet surrounded us as we filtered water from the creek near Junction Spring.
It was starting to sprinkle so we set up camp below Split Level Ruin and quickly cooked dinner. Minutes after we got cozy in our sleeping bags, the rain picked up. It had been a good day.
We didn’t know it yet, but we would see the coolest rock art of the whole trip tomorrow!
the plant is American vetch, Vicia americana.
Awesome. Thanks for the ID, Stephen. I added that to the caption and I might plant some on our patio as it looks like they are native here as well.
I liked how you let the captions of the photos be the main text of this blog. I may steal that format for my next write up. :)
So happy to be able to share in what you saw on this hike. This is my favorite type of landscape in the world!
