Over the southern edge of the Kaibab Plateau, directly above Pine Hollow Canyon, this is looking south through Coyote Valley. On the left, the reddish purple formation is the wondrous Coyote Buttes, In the distance lays House Rock Valley and the beginnings of the Grand Canyon.
For eons, this small river running through that valley has provided passage for animals and First Nations tribespeople traversing this harsh landscape connecting the Grand Canyon area to the Escalante Grand Staircase and lands beyond.
The view below is the perspective looking back to the north from right above Coyote Buttes, located in the foreground bottom of the image. In the distance are the Vermilion Cliffs and White Cliffs of Escalante Grand Staircase and on the horizon lay the pink cliffs of Bryce Canyon National Park.
