Quelles jolies couleurs, la barrière est assortie à  la roche.
Frank L Croston.: The colours are wonderful in this place, Martine, and so many!
the rail fence sets off the framing of the Badger canyon very well Frank...
extra special image....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Peter, I liked it as foreground, I was sorely tempted to use a b/w version, but the colours in this place are hard to resist.

Those colours are very striking Frank
Frank L Croston.: It would be difficult to find a more colourful landscape, Chris.

Did it really get its names from Badgers being here, Frank? It looks too barren
Frank L Croston.: I wondered that myself, its not the first time I've come across the name here, Elisabeth. Then I found this. The story goes that Jacob Hamblin killed a badger in one canyon and carried it to the other to their camp on the other to boil it for food. The next morning, because of the alkali in the water and the fat from the badger, there was nothing but a kettle of soap! Its confusingly written, but it could be correct.

The old fence makes this for me. It beggars belief just how the early travellers could cope in such an environment. I love the colours in the rocks and the sky.
Frank L Croston.: I was pleased to come across it, Alan, just behind me is a sheer drop of about 50ft ( Stuff metres) part of a wash that must make quite a waterfall after heavy rain. As you say this environment is so tough, how anyone got through it is amazing. The colours on this walk were wonderful, it has become one of our favourite places, plus, you get to see Condors if you are lucky!
Superb Frank! A great transformation here...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Richard.
A suitable name for these reddish rocks Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Rather different than the more esoteric names around here, Andrew.

Rather worryingly that fence just stepped out of my iPad! Hyper real.
Frank L Croston.: Watch those splinters, Mike! Thank you.
The red rocks wake me right up, Frank. Perfect with coffee.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...I was gagging for a cup of tea....smile
If ever there was a great photo opportunity this is it and what a great job you made of it.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Brian, I was torn between the b/w version and this, but the colours won!
This amazing image sums up what attracts me to the West...
Frank L Croston.: I'm with you, Larry, thank you.
Very good Frank, love the colours.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Michael, quite a place, we made it almost to the cliff face.
I like this composition very much. It would be so much less without the fence
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Bill, you are right, the other shots I took lack the foreground this has.
That looks hot, hot, hot!
Frank L Croston.: It was, was, was...Tom....smile
