Shivwits Plataeu

Grand Canyon, Utah, United States

Category: Field Life

This abandoned truck was stumbled upon during an excavation, at least 4 hours away from the nearest town (with cellular service), deep in the Shivwitz plateau in the northern rim of the Grand Canyon. If our four-wheel-drive truck struggled to get to the remote location in the Grand Canyon, I could only imagine what this truck endured in it's prime.
