Bryce Canyon, Utah

It’s a helluva place to lose a cow” -Ebenezar Bryce

The talk around Ruby’s Inn was that it would snow overnight. It was said with disappointment but to me this was exciting news. Early the next morning, we arrived at the Canyon in bitter cold but it was a place of wonder I will always remember. As a bonus, it was deserted, we were the only ones there for the first hour near dawn.

The Watchman, Zion National Park, Utah

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter” -Ansel Adams

Zion National Park was created in 1918, and it was one of the gems of the U.S. Park system. It includes the Zion Canyon, cut out of the towering Navajo Sandstone by the Virgin River. An efficient shuttle system moves visitors about. It is worth a trip at all times of the year, our October 2006 trip was a particularly colorful time.

Mesa Arch

Located in Canyonlands National Park, Mesa Arch is one of the great iconic scenes from the southwest. At sunrise the light shines on the underside of the arch creating a warm glow in the red rock. In the distance can be seen a framed view of Canyonlands.

Hollywood has made it known to many people, as a great many Westerns were filmed in Monument Valley. It is one of my favorite places, a place where a look in every direction shows great beauty.

The southwest is filled with landscape wonders but I don’t think any are better than Bryce Canyon when the first rays light the hoodoos.

Hovenweep National Monument

Hovenweep National Monument

I do love these ancient ruins.
We never tread upon them but we set
Our foot upon some reverend history

– John Webster

Hovenweep National Monument, situated on the Utah-Colorado border, is named for a Paiute/Ute word meaning “Deserted Valley”. The stone structures were built by Puebleans who occupied the valley from A.D. 500 to A.D. 1300. An extended drought caused them to desert the area and re-settle along the Rio Grande valley in New Mexico.

The structures are very finely made on irregular stone boulder bases, and have lasted over 700 years.
