First of Many

I took a little photography fieldtrip out to Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments yesterday and took tons of pictures.....222 to be exact. So, needless to say, you will be seeing mostly photos from that trip for the next several posts. I still have a lot of post-processing to do of the images, but here is one to get us started.

I took this photo from small rise just off of NF-545, a quiet forest road that connects Sunset Crater NM and Wupatki NM. In the distance you can see part of what is known as the Painted Desert, a large high desert area just northeast of Flagstaff. In the Painted Desert, erosion has exposed several layers of bedrock each of which is of a different color ranging from pink to purple to blue to gray.

I think I recognize this location - not far away from this spot, there are 2 cotton wood trees, in Fall, they have some crazy color!
Nice shot!

Wow! As Jim says, the road doesn't end. What a great view!

I love this photo so much that I've got it as my background on my computer at work. So many people are asking me where it is, it's so beautiful!
