White Pocket

(Click HERE for more photographs.)

We purchased a tour with Paria Outpost who are located in Big Water, UT, some 40 miles east of Kanab, UT.  From there it was a one and 1/2 hour ride over dirt roads, requiring a high ground clearance vehicle to get to White Pocket.

I can’t explain the geology that created this phenomenon and I don’t want to over use superlatives.  Suffice it to say that this is one of the most unique and interesting places we have ever seen.  It is an area of approximately one square mile located in the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness.  We hope that our photos will give you some insight into the other-worldly nature of White Pocket.
