I made my first trip to the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in May 2016 on my way through southern Utah and the Navajo Nation in Arizona. The landscape just blew me away. So when I decided to go back to Utah in the fall of 2017 I knew that I had to make a return visit to this out of the way and hard to get to national monument. This time I didn't even try for a permit for the Wave. I instead went straight to White Pocket where I camped for one night and photographed a mind-boggling landscape that seemed to be straight out of a Van Gogh painting. It was a trip. Other photos in this collection include the Coyote Buttes South, Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley and the White House Ruins from Canyon De Chelly National Monument.
