Colorado & Utah:
Shiprock & Canyonland

Shiprock, Colorado

The first of many times I had the impression I was seeing a monumental
natural formation that evoked the architecture of the Middle Ages.

Headed northwest to Utah: the San Juan Mountains

Canyonland (Utah)


Along the drive into the park:
this looks like a face by Picasso

These layers reminded me of the walls at Chaco--especially the spot here left of
center, where the layers have collapsed.

And these formations, from a distance I was not able to get quite right
(but the first one, below, is pretty good), can look like human figures in procession.
