Saddle Canyon
This 360° Spherical Panoramo opens with a view looking straight down Saddle Canyon. As you follow it down you can see where it joins the Colorado River just below a butte on one of the lower tiers of sedimentary layers. As you look out across the horizon you can see the familiar landmark of Shinumo Altar. It seems as though no matter where you are in the Marble Canyon area, Shinumo Altar is always in the view. Move your view just slightly to the left end of Shinumo Altar. I didn’t notice it until I constructed this panorama but just a bit below, and to the left of Shinumo Alter, you will notice a long, linear shadow as it tracks from the rim to the northeast towards the Echo Cliffs. The shadow is created by the bluffs of the Eminence Break fault. The low area to the left of Eminence Break is the subsidence graben formed when the Eminence Break occurred. Something else that I did not notice until I constructed the panorama is that far, far in the distance, past the Eminence Break, and even farther out than the Echo Cliffs, is a glimpse of the top of Navajo Mountain which reaches the height of 10,346’ high. You may have to zoom in quite tightly to spot it. It is 75 miles from where this panorama was shot to the top of Navajo Mountain.
