105 - Arizona's White Pocket
PDF File via download
White Pocket is a unique spot a few miles east of The Wave and one of those remote locations for which photographers are always searching. A hard, thin sandstone crust covers a core of red Navajo sandstone. Toward the center of this landscape are large depressions, the "pockets" for which this area was named.

White Pocket has a hard, thin sandstone crust covering a core of red Navajo sandstone. The light-colored crust is almost completely covered with patterns of narrow cracks, dividing the surface into four-, five-, and six-sided polygons, each slightly raised in the center, like a pillow. In some places, the white crust has been torn open to reveal the underlying red sandstone. Huge mounds rise all over the rolling terrain, resembling the exposed brains of ancient underground creatures.
