This newsletter explores a desert landscape paved with pink hexagonal blocks decorated with orange stripes. I recently learned of a remote canyon in southern Utah with walls of red and white striped patterns and strange
pillow-like formations. Hot summer weather delayed my explorations of this St. George location. Cool, dry October days have lured me back to the desert. If you are a fan of desert photography, add Yant Flat and the Candy
Cliffs to your travel list. You’ll definitely want to photograph this strangely sculpted landscape.
Bizarre formations at Yant Flat are the remains of ancient
petrified sand dunes along the edge of the Colorado Plateau that have been pushed up and exposed to the erosive forces of nature. These formations lie
across the southern slopes of the Pine Valley Mountains, ten
miles north of St. George, down in the southwestern corner of the
state of Utah. St. George is on Interstate 15, two hours north of Las Vegas.
