Valley Of The Gods, in the Bears Ears National Monument, Utah. Go there if you get a chance. This image is from a few years ago. It still moves me to the point of distraction, and I madly want to be there. Thanks for looking. G
In the shadow of the dike wall at Shiprock, NM. Ship Rock is also known as Tse Bitai, or “the winged rock” in Navajo. Personally, I prefer the latter. I haven’t ever caught on to the idea of it looking much like a ship. Click on the link below for more info on “Shiprock” and thanks for looking. G
White Place, Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu NM. A quick iphone image from a day in Abiquiu and Plaza Blanca (Georgia O’Keeffe’s “White Place”) today. Thanks for looking. G
Plaza Blanca window in Abiquiu, New Mexico. As the erosion occurs the window opening grows larger continually revealing more of the landscape beyond. Eventually the window will be gone, none of the formations will be the same. In the southwest nothing lasts very long except for the beauty, it remains! G
On a trip to Abiquiu, New Mexico we stopped in to Plaza Blanca, “The White Place” made famous by Georgia O’Keefe and featured in many movies over the recent decades. Thanks for looking. G
Ute Mountain emerges from the clouds after last weekend’s snow storm. Ute Mountain is north of Taos on the road to Colorado and often appears protruding, fin like, moving through the clouds. It also creates it’s own weather system. I’ve often seen rain and snow falling solely on the dome of this extinct volcano, a major geological feature in the Taos Volcanic Field/Plateau. Here’s another image of Ute.
Grasslands at Shiprock. Horses grazing in apparent contentment which reflects my mood and infuses my spirit when I gaze on the monumental formation known as Shiprock ‘sailing’ through the grasses on the Navajo Tribal Reservation in the four corners region of north western New Mexico.
Mountain Geological Survey. Yeah right. This a more of a drive by geological observation and cell phone snap. The shape of the rock, the tilted, tipsy looking trees, caused me to pull over and make a quick picture in the Santa Fe National Forest. Cheers. G
