Camping and Exploring the Utah desert in winter has a few advantages. The main pone is that there are very few people. After a night of car camping with temps in the teens, I made my way to the very familiar Mesa Arch. When it's warm, expect to be standing elbow to elbow with 50 of your closest photographer friends. This is a different story in the winter. With only one other photographer, I saw the sun come up through this amazing piece of rock and light the freezing landscape with beautiful, bold, warm light. No doubt worth the cold night of car camping. A morning to remember.
