    Thought I'd start a variation of the regular Guess the canyon thread. In this version, you may only post screen shots from topo, aerial or terrain view maps. No photos.

    What canyon is this?

    No, not Upper Death Hollow (and no where in Escalante complex).

    Hint: Not Navajo Sandstone.

    Yes. Shouldn't be too hard now (using Google Earth).

    Extra hints:

    The lower ends of both are some of the most popular short hikes in Dinosaur and they are officially named.

    That would be Road Canyon on Cedar Mesa.

    I hope to be somewhere near this canyon in the next few days.

    (For some reason, the insert image tool won't allow me to select files from my computer, so I had to put this on a Google site and link to it).

    It seems to be working now. I can see the image even if I don't log on.
