Tiny rivulets fan out like estuarial streams eroded into white limestone mounds
around hoodoos in the Wahweap Wash. These hoodoos were a 4-mile hike from the road and had to be reached before sunrise to avoid harsh sunlight. I hadn't scouted this trail, but fortunately three other hikers arrived at the same time, and one had been there before and knew where the trail started. Once I was confident that the route was straightforward, I was able to hustle along and reach the hoodoos well before sunrise.
