Photographer's Note

The numerous visitors to White Pocket have an impact on the area. While the rock isn't actually screaming in pain, footsteps add to its erosion, especially when unthinking tourists walk on fragile edges or see the mounds as climbing challenges. The puddles forming this face are transient, the dry high desert and bright sun will soon sip the last drop of water from them and the depressions may remain empty for years.
