This pool in the BLM's Paria Canyon Wilderness reflects the sculpted sandstone that water helped form, and then shape. (Technically this formation lies in Arizona, but the trailhead is in Utah!)
I've recently started leading other photographers to this and other sites that I've visited and documented in my blog over the past couple of years: www.activesole.blogspot.com.
