White Pocket is the real gem of the Vermilion Cliffs and its surrounding area. You will travel to this most scenic place with the most unusual geology in the region.  On this 8 hour trip (3 hours at White Pocket), you will leave having visited one of the most amazing places in all of the southwest of the USA.  The area of White Pocket on the Paria Plateau in Northern Arizona is very impressive indeed!  While many are lured and wait their turn to visit the infamous "Wave" in the North Coyote Buttes, the White Pocket area to the east is seldom visited - maybe because of its remoteness or the requirement of a 4WD vehicle to access the area.

The impressive White Pocket will fill the senses beyond imagination!  The drive to the swirling, twisted, multicolored natural artwork is an adventure in its own right and the exploration by foot is endless.  White Pocket will surely become "top of the top" on your list of special places.  This area has colors, shapes and textures that are hard to beat.  A trip to White pocket is a memory of a lifetime.

Time spent will be for exploration and photography and moderate hiking is involved; water and a sandwich are provided but guides encourage you to pack your own bag with water and items you may need while on the tour.
