You can find the canyon by taking the first unmarked road after turning from Artist's Palette back onto Badwater Road.

While driving back from Artoo's canyon, I was slowed down considerably by some waaay too careful drivers and I lost a lot of time.

It was actually quite dark by the time I got here as it was 5:58 PM, and the sun had just set.  (This set of photos have been heavily enhanced by Photoshop otherwise there would not be much to see!)

To get to the locations where the Tusken Raiders mounted their Bantha, or Luke spotted them in his macrobinoculars, you have to walk from the end of the gravel road around a bend into the canyon.

The canyon is quite large - and would have made for a really nice hike if it wasn't already sundown.

I think the portion of the canyon used was actually much closer to the the entrance.

In actuality, it was this dark, and getting darker by the minute.
