Negro Bill Canyon to Morning Glory Bridge, Pt II

These are Marilyn’s photos from the hike that we did on our first full day in the Moab area. This was a new hike for us; it was a fun hike and we’ll definitely do it again some day. We all wore long pants because there’s a lot of poison ivy in the area.  We saw some big patches of it alongside the trail.  (A woman that we met along the way pointed it out to us; I didn’t know what it looks like.)

Marilyn took this shot from the trailhead.  A commemorative plaque is visible on the rock at the bottom of the photo.  We expected this to be a plaque about William Granstaff, after whom the canyon is named, but it was not.
