Why here……

What was it about this spot, a place, at least to my eye that is unremarkable and much like other areas up and down this canyon. Yet here are images of the past etched in and painted on the canyon wall.

They were here long before us…

We are wildlife photographers but we are interested in the world at large and have, over time, had that interest manifest itself in the desire to learn more about and photograph Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) ruins and rock art. It has been through this quest that we have come to a profound realization of just how populated our country was. Imagine this….although it is still debated, there were an estimated 18 – 20 million Native Americans living north of Mexico in the United States when many of our European ancestors first set foot on our shores.
