This particular spot is at the edge of Wedding Canyon near the Monument’s only campground. I don’t tend to be afraid of heights, so I am very much at home wandering these rims, and I often set up my gear and paint quite close to the edge if that is the view I want. And without fail, each time I do, some kindly person who seems to think I am not fully cognizant of where I am standing will advise me to be careful. On this particular day I didn’t set up – the weather was getting worse and I decided to settle for a few photos as potential reference. But I was nonetheless reminded by a kindly stranger to be careful – 'them rocks is slippery when wet.'" - Stephen C. Datz
