Loving the desert….
I made an itinerary for a friend who lives in New England, who would like to visit the desert. I suggested the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, then up to Bryce Canyon NP in Utah, down through Monument Valley (UT/AZ) and the Painted Desert. I then looked for some pics of Bryce Cnyn NP. None of the pics do it justice, but I found a blog of a photographer whose site has pics of all the places I mentioned, except for the Painted Desert.
Bryce Cnyn, and a good shot, but not one of the hoodoos, which are amazing to behold:
Ah! The hoodoos, which just don’t translate right, even in photography. You gotta be there in person:
Painted Desert, not from the above photographer… It’s another thing that just doesn’t translate in 2D. There are the oddest and the most beautiful formations of earth and rock that you stare at… and can’t figure out how they came to be. It must have been only dreamed up in the imagination of our gloriously creative God.
