White Canyon crowned by Brown's Rim  near Lake Powell and the town of Hite Utah. The geology and textures of the Colorado Plateau never fail to amaze the onlooker. <br />

White Canyon starts in the foothills of the Abajo Mountains and joins the north end of Lake Powell near Hite Utah after about 45 miles, passing through Natural Bridges National Monument en route. The upper stretches are quite shallow but the gorge soon becomes wide and deep, bordered by crumbling red and white cliffs at either side, a scenic backdrop to UT 95, the amazing Utah Centennial Highway.
