stuck on the shelf step-by-step

This is Turret Arch, in the noon-time glare. The clouds weren’t blocking the sun where I was standing, and it felt like it was close to 100°F. Towards the right of the photo you can see a man in a white t-shirt. Tucked up in the rock cleft is his companion, who has climbed just a bit too far up and now can’t figure out the way back; he’s in the process of talking her down, one foot-hold at a time.

July 31, 2010. Arches National Park, Utah.
