Cathedral District SunsetThe clouds, the mountains to the west, the time of day, we caught an aperture of light on one of the cathedral rocks.
Mountains East of Burris TrailLooking due east across the Strike Valley, these snow capped mountains clearly stand against the sky.
Strike Valley BendIn the Waterpocket District formations of the Strike Valley are exposed for miles, strikingly. Pun intended for all those with a "geo" in their professional degrees.
Here we see the strike of the beds taking a miles long swerve. Awesome.
Late on the Scenic DriveJust a few miles south of the Visitors Center, project some beautifully exposed formations, grandly lying high above the valley floor.
I was not so far off the road, and was amused by the cars flying along way over the 20 MPH speed limit. When they saw me out photographing they jammed on the brakes until they realized I was just capturing rocks on film. Then pedal to the metal. If I had been shooting with an iPhone they would have stopped. GRINS.
