Red Rock Canyon: Day 2

We were up very early after an uncomfortable night on a rock hard bed.  The east sky was just starting to lighten up. We arrived at Red Rock Canyon with one other hiker/photographer. I set up on a tripod and started with 3 sec exposures.  We were in the shadow of a hill, so the good light took some time to reach the bottom of the rocks we were interested in.  Then I took a walk closer to the cliffs to get a good close-up of fingers of rock.  They looked like human fingers with a thumb. Then back to motel to get the last of the continental breakfast.  They had two waffle makers so I made a waffle.  It was good. Then on the road to retrace our path to Red Rock and beyond.
