Monsoon Season in the Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon, North Rim

When I visited the North Rim of the Grand Canyon several years ago,
I did not know that August was the rainy season.
Live and Learn.


The National Parks

Delicate Arch, Arches National Park, Moab, Utah

Many photographers, both amateur and professional, have taken thousands of photos of these landscapes.  But regardless of the artistic talent and technical skill of the photographer, to stand on the edge of the Grand Canyon, to see an arch at Arches National Park, to drive along Rte 24 in Utah to see Capitol Reef National Park, is to really see the land.

The photograph is of the Delicate Arch located in Arches National Park, Moab, Utah.

On the Road

highway, road

I come from the east where roads constantly twist and turn.
In the American West they travel straight, for miles.
It is a thing of beauty.


In The Land of Heaven

If you want to avoid the crowds of the South Rim, head north!

Navajo Nation

NAVAJO NATION

Monument Valley is located in the Navajo Nation. I discovered the Valley in Ernst Haas images in the 1960’s and dreamt of visiting one day. It wasn’t until 2006 when that dream was realized.
