The Road to Ruin

April 25, 2022 Just as it started to get a bit too hot in Marble Canyon, we moved up to Mount Carmel, Utah so we could explore a new area and meet up with some friends staying in Kanab.  Though Marble Canyon was beautiful, our location had frequent high winds!  One of the last days we were there, I made my fabulous rock art before we left on an open patch of sand next to our campsite.  The rocks here are so sharp and rough that my fingerprint no longer unlocked my passwords on my MacBook for a few days afterward!  I also took…
