The photo above shows the stark beauty of Paria Canyon which straddles the border between Utah and Arizona. As streams on the Colorado Plateau cut into Navajo sandstone, narrow slot canyons often form. This scenic canyon is but one of the many slot canyons in the Four Corners area where the borders of Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico converge of the Colorado Plateau.
