Every effort on this Gallery site has been made to accurately represent the vibrant colours of Sam’s images. Due to differences in computer screens and certain other variations, the images here should only to be taken as a guide. Obviously, the colour and sharpness of a finished print are far superior to what can be presented on a small screen.

The Subway is one of the few canyons that requires a Wilderness Permit. This canyon has gained epic popularity and the National Park Service has an advanced lottery and permit reservation system in place to allocate permits to 80 people a day. You will soon see the dramatic lower Subway, a very short section of canyon where both walls come together and a larger tubular oval has been cut out by the flowing water. Enjoy the light, the flowing water in the emerald pools, and the numerous unique pothole and weeping wall formations. This is truly a unique and magical spot in the desert. The lower Subway is the turnaround spot for this hike, but if you’re willing to get wet, you can continue back into the pools to what’s known as the “waterfall room” to see a small 20-foot tall little waterfall created by a logjam, which of course I had to do.
