On Friday we hiked in the snow about 2 miles to landscape arch and got this picture to share as a tease of what to look forward to in the next two months. We must admit that the moon was a little added attraction to the photo by Dick.
While camping at Goosenecks State Park we spent a lot of time traveling around the area. A small town just a few miles down the road is Mexican Hat. It got it's name from the balanced rock that looks like of all things a Mexican hat.
What is just as interesting is the hills in the background.
A little closer shot of the various colors in the slopes with still some snow on the hills.
A little closer look at the zig-zag patterns on the hills. It was an overcast day so did not get a true picture of the distinct colors.
Dick drove the 17 mile dirt road through the Valley of the Gods on another cloudy day so no blue sky here. But did see some great sights. Wonder how bright the red sand would show up with the evening sun shining on it.
Around every corner was another unique rock formation, some in the distance.
And then a little closer.
Not sure what keeps some standing but they will all be gone in years to come. Lots of years.
