Thanks Herbert! I thought the same thing when I this. These white domes are located in an area of red rock which made them more interesting.

Total agreement! The Colorado Plateau is a very colourful place. I especially like the white colours. NATURE is cleaver with her brush!!! Thanks for posting, Melinda!

Thanks, I really liked the White Domes. They stand out so it was hard for me not to take a photo of them. Some of them do look like they belong in a painting.

It's sad however that ATV's go out there in this pristine wilderness area and destroy. There are black marks on many of the domes from them, but great photo!

Thanks Tanya! I love those domes too and seeing the ATV’s was the only thing I didn’t like. I’m not sure what they can do about it though. It probably isn’t a good idea to mess with the locals, especially around the city of Hilldale…

We have looked into it and lots of the ATV riders are from elsewhere including Kane and Washington County. From what we are told there is only one BLM guy to patrol a huge area so they don't check Cannan too often. Sad, because that is gorgeous there!

Thank you! The domes in that area were very unique. Some of them were orange with striped layers. Others were pure white with yellow veins.

Thanks! This is a good area for taking photographs. There weren’t very many hikers either. I may have to go back up there via a different route to see the entire plateau.

Thanks Ray! People call these the White Domes but are actually several colors of white, orange, red, and yellow. It was definitely a beautiful spot.

Thank you, alberto! The darker colored sandstone in this area is good for rock climbing. The lighter rock seen in this photo is a weaker layer and breaks more easily.
