Photographer's Note

The title is a reminder, a litany I repeat as I hike and take photos. It's not just because the lure of the unknown, the yet to be seen, draws me forward, entices me to go beyond where my water supply says turn back. It's because the view behind me can be just as attractive, just as photo worthy as what I see in front of me.

Having left the previous tributary I was back in the main portion of Cathedral Wash heading upstream. Taken at about the same point as my previous photo, this one looks downstream. In the distance, across the Colorado River and on the Navajo Reservation, the jagged peaks of "Lees Backbone" rise above the plateau.

Best viewed by opening in a new tab.

I removed some highlight from the sky and ran Photoshop's auto contrast on the rest as well as removing dead sensor spots from the sky.

ISO 100, f/18 @ 1/250th second, 16mm focal length
