White Domes on Canaan Mountain

A 2 day traverse of Canaan Mountain Wilderness in southern Utah- just south of Zion National Park.
We started in the small town of Rockville and hiked over to Hilldale/Colorado City on the Utah-Arizona border and then hitch hiked back to the car. A superb overnighter!
