Coalmine Canyon is a remote canyon on the outskirts of the Painted Desert in Northern Arizona. I visited this location last winter after a snowstorm blanketed the high desert in a layer of white. As sunset approached, I gingerly made my way out across the loose stone almost slipping to my death at least once to gain this perspective. This area reminds me so much of Bryce canyon but without the paved roads and hoards of tourists.
