A few of my posts recently have focused on rocks. They’re just endlessly fascinating. Maybe I missed my vocation and should have been a geologist… I make no apology for my obsession. Here are some more pics, from Utah:
Everyone knows Monument Valley, and mighty impressive it is too. Brings out the John Wayne in me; makes me want to shout ‘Yihaaa!’ (I did, quite a lot, to the embarrassment of the kids). But round the corner is a lesser known but just as impressive valley, all the better because it’s deserted.
This is Mystery Valley, land of arches and Navajo ruins. It’s a gem. In fact it’s such a fantastic place for photographers that I don’t think I should be telling you about it. Forget that I’ve told you where it is, enjoy my pictures, and then never go there. Leave it to the Navajo ghosts (and to me, when I return with my tripod!)
This is truly a land of wide open spaces and dramatic rock formations. Awesome, in the true sense of a much overused word…
A dirt track leads out of the valley. Forget the car, I need my horse! And a stetson! YIHAAAAAA!!!!!
