This is another painting from Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah.
It was about a 2 mile trail down to the bottom of the canyon. Part of it was down these stairs built into the side of the cliff. I was unable to make it down the Sipapu Bridge Trail. It was not much longer, but much more challenging. I made it along the trail that was precariously on the side of the cliff w/ no guard rails; I made it down the metallic stair case that was bolted into the side of the cliff; but, when it came to climbing down a two story ladder made of tree trunks, my fear of heights took over. Yes, it was bolted into the cliff, but I couldn't get down it. I've climbed up a 2 story ladder at Mesa Verde; but there was something about stepping over and down that held me back. So, we hiked the other 2 trails instead.
To give some perspective to the size of these bridges, here I am! Looking back at this photo I see I made the foreground a little more red/orange. Maybe I'll warm it up a bit.
