WHY IT IS CALLED RED CANYON
"A truly dramatic place - Booster Alley - and as lovely and serene as they come. We traipsed all over this area and we found many spent rocket boosters scattered everywhere but managed not to have even one visible for this photo." Alan Graham
What a photo! Look at that beautiful red rock cliff! It was from an area like this that the men quarried the red rock to build the chapel. And it was that tall dry grass which so frequently caught fire downrange.
