On April 29th I drove down to the southeast (outside) edge of the San Rafael Swell, just north of Goblin Valley State Park.

Again.

This time I wanted to hike a mile or so up the swell incline so I could fly my drone over the more interesting parts of Crack Canyon. This time the weather and wind cooperated.

It was a pleasant ‘springtime in the desert’ kind of hike with only some elevation change. I was able to fly my drone and get a good view of areas that I will never get to explore on foot.

Crack Canyon

Though we didn’t have any rain during the month of April, there were still some wildflowers blooming.

Crested Crown Vetch

Another perfect day!
