OK, just for fun. Name that canyon. This is my brother and I on 8/31/1985. Ages 9 and 11.
Correct. It's the Black Hole.
I would think this would be almost impossible for someone to guess where it was taken. Even if you did the nearby hike, this particular clearing (from which the photo was taken) requires a creek crossing and some mild bushwacking. Worth every minute of it. I take that back . . . somebody like Scott Patterson could probably nail it. Guesses?
Is this up Big Cottonwood Canyon by chance, near a very popular trail?

No. It is actually found in western Colorado. The hike is called Blaine's Basin, and its trailhead is at the same location as the famous "Blue Lake" hike that takes one into and through the Mt. Sneffels wilderness (the access road is off of Hiway 62, on the left about five miles west of Ridgway, CO). At any rate, when hiking to Blaine's Basin, one can see only a section of a waterfall, because the rest of it is in forest. By crossing the creek and hiking up the right side of the creek, one comes to a clearing, where I took the shot.
