Our camp at 119 Mile Creek was filled with strange crystal formations and rock carved by the river and wind.
You can see the "dripping" crystal deposits that cause an effect like spagetti and their intermixing with the rock to form "gargolyles" over our heads.
Looking down the river you can again see the play of light and color on the cliff walls, different layers of mineral deposits and rock types create a wonderful background.
