Located in a remote area of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona (mypubliclands), White Pocket is a hidden treasure of swirling, twisting Navajo sandstone. Getting here is a bit of a challenge, but the reward is definitely worth the effort! David Lane captured this stunning 16-image panorama of White Pocket with the Milky Way glittering overhead. Of visiting White Pocket, David says, “As hard as it is to get there its even harder to describe. Every corner reveals explosions of color, something new and amazing.”
