Backpacker magazine made a major boo-boo on the photo caption on page 53 of the August issue. A correct caption would be: "Look north from Horseshoe Mesa to snap a shot of Vishnu Temple". This is the second major photo caption mistake I've read in Backpacker in the past two years. You need better fact-checking.
