...for all the info, I hope to go here someday!
Thank you! I think you'll like it-- your photos and pages suggest you would.
Wonderful "cultural" twist on your page.
Thank you very much. It was a learning experience.
Thank you! I hope you get out there. It's a beautiful and humbling place.
Thanks for pointing that out. I really don't know how I did that, but it's fixed now. And thanks for the comment on the shots!
Update-- I see that it's the photos that have the bad coordinates. I rarely use them for photos. I must have once used those coordinates for something and then the system automatically kept them for future submissions. I may have hundreds of photos with the same problem. Hopefully, most people will use the links on the main pages!
The change I made was to the main page.
Good page, but perhaps change the page type to "canyon" rather than "area and range".
I originally did it that way, but changed it to an area because it is a unit of the park itself. I personally think canyon pages should be for smaller, narrower objects, but that's just my opinion. For example, I haven't checked the Grand Canyon page, but I know I'd have made it an area. Same thing with Black Canyon of the Gunnison, which I think is a canyon page on SP. Anyway, if it seems like a big deal, I'm happy to change it back. You are, after all, maintainer of the Canyonlands page, so I honestly don't want you thinking there are awkward submissions to your page.
Just let me know. As I said, I'm happy to change it back. That would also make the "climbers log" (quite a climb in and out!) reappear.
Edit: My mistake-- you're not the Canyonlands page owner, though I thought you were. Still, please tell me what you think concerning my other response.

It’s known as the detached unit, but still part of the Maze District (which has a page). It could be a “child” to that page?

I agree, but Horseshoe is pretty small compared to those two. Just my own thought.
Anyway, the only reason I made the suggestion is because I couldn’t find the page in the search function under canyons, but remembered that there was a page. I found it through the photos.
Anyway, I added links the Horseshoe page to some of my new route pages, if you wanted to take a look (I noticed you already saw the Bluejohn Page):
I used one of your good photos too, if you don't mind. Lots of cool stuff to see in the area.
I didn't know it was part of the Maze and always thought it was a fourth unit, and my maps and guides don't make that clear, but I'll take your word for it. I may know far more about Utah than most other Easterners do, but I think you know at least a tad bit more about it than I do! So I changed it back to a canyon.
And thanks for including the picture. I've read some of the Bluejohn pages but haven't gotten around to all of them yet (not enough break time at work, dammit). The one's I've seen so far are great, though I am a little surprised you posted them. Still, I read your reasoning for it and understand. It must be pretty disappointing when someone tells about your secret places. Then again, why not share when it's public land? Tough question. Many different takes on it.
It's tough to describe the wonder of it, but you managed better than I could. The confession/conversion section was a great read. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you. Yes, now I have a totally different appreciation of real rock art.
Great write up on a spectacular place...love it there! The rock art is superb and vast....
