Alcove Camp

Escalante, Utah

A great campsite in a tributary of the Escalante River, under a huge sandstone alcove.  This is where over the millenia the drainage has carved a huge undercut into the cliff wall, leaving a flat sandy bench with a massive arching sandstone ceiling!  This was our basecamp for three nights as we explored the nearby canyons.
