Hints:

1-2) It's located between these canyons
3) An ancient culture was known for these doors (This was the first time I saw one in it's natural setting, verry :cool:).



I'll check back in a while, right now need to clean up and relax :beer::beer:

Most people post trip reports about where they went without pics... Perry posts trip reports with pics but not where he went... :hill:

Thats my guess as well....Again, close. Just head west across the boarder some.

That's not Colorado.

Okay. One last guess. Hovenweep.

Nope:D.

Man, this is good stuff! Spent four days out there and saw no one! In the bottom of the valley, the sage was six feet high, and ruins littered the valley.

PS; My back is not happy from hauling all that camera gear 10 miles a day,l but man was it worth it!!

There's probably more than one Dark Canyon in Utah, but were you in the Grand Gulch Primitive Area? How about Gravel Canyon, White Canyon, or maybe Arch Canyon?

You could also call it the Cedar Mesa area...

I was thinking of the one near Glen Canyon, where they found Horsecollar ruins in Natural Bridges. That I think would be near Cedar Mesa and directly due west of Monticello. That might also explain the night shot since NBNM is known to be very, very dark amongst astronomers and photogs.

I think that's the one I know about Dave, and White Canyon and Gravel Canyon are also in the area...was thinking of doing a backpacking trip there once. Jacob's Chair is also in the area...

Kim and I did a backpacking trip into Dark Canyon years ago. we entered via the Sundance Trail and explored the main canyon and most of the side canyons from the reservoir up to Woodenshoe Canyon. Great area and very remote.

Fable? :-/

So, as in Fable Canyon?

Then am I right? That guess not specific, though.

Trailheads

The Sundance Trail is the primary access route into the lower portion of Dark Canyon.
Fable Valley is part of the BLM’s Dark Canyon Primitive Area. The valley is approximately eight miles long and can be reached by one of two trailheads. The southern trailhead from Dark Canyon Plateau is more easily accessible; the northern trailhead from Beef Basin is very hard to reach. Fable Valley does not get extensive back country use. It has been historically used by cattle; currently livestock do not graze here on a regular basis.

Ding! You got it Dave:thumb:. I spent a long weekend with my dad in Fable Valley Utah. Located in between Beef Basin and Dark Canyon.

Fable Canyon (or Fable Valley as it is on the maps) is an amazingly remote area with many ruins, heck in our hiking, we found a full arrow head and a pottery sherd that was about 4x2 inches in diameter. Only saw one set of tracks and for the three days we were there, not a single person:cool:.

I'm working on pics now, so will get a trip report up here soon.

I wonderd about that when I posted over there:o
