The Colorado Plateau is a pretty dry place.  A desert to most.  Maybe 8″ of precip in many areas.  The water, when it comes, moves the meager mineral soils in surprising ways.  Gravity, wind and capillary action can make a plain rock wall into a canvas of beauty that would be at home in a fine art gallery.

Desert evokes a thin, hard place.  The canyons of  red rock country may be hard but they are anything but thin.

  1. That’s a different kind of beauty. I am hopelessly biased to red rocks so I really like these.

    • Yeah, I’m an irredeemable lover of that country, glad you liked them.
