White Pocket, Arizona (psychedelic) dream

The Sphinx
Posted by
The geography of the USA is presenting yet another unique and twisted landscape to discover. White Pocket is located in a remote area of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Due to the difficult access to the area, it doesn't receive many visitors yet. Also it has been a bit overshadowed by other famous neighboring attractions, like The Wave in Coyote Buttes.

You can find all the practical stuff about how to go to White Pocket and a map, in the link included at the end of this post. Now we just sit back and enjoy these selected photographs:

Marijana also gave me some advice: Try to be there for the sunset. If you go at noon, that's no good for photography. Image by Dave Soldano

How to go visit White Pocket
But the best it's to have both sunset and dawn: stay for the night!

The Wave
To go to White Pocket you don't require an advance permit, as you do to visit the famous The Wave.

So you better go before the park management limits access, at some point soon. This image belongs to the nearby South Coyote Buttes. Image by John Fowler
