Boulders And Trees

the arizona snowbowl ski resort is located on the san francisco peaks just north of flagstaff. A lazy walk on some alpine meadows yielded this photograph of boulders and trees on this late afternoon in may – the warm sunset glow lighting them up.

Overlooking The Canyon

truly a dream come true, visiting the grand canyon… not off the photographic bucket list yet though – i was largely disappointed with my grand canyon photographs. i shall make it back there one day!

located on the south rim, here you have desert view watchtower (aka indian watchtower at desert view) overlooking the canyon on a late afternoon.

tree by the volcano

Tree By The Volcano

heading north on highway 89 out of flagstaff, my final destination was page, arizona. shortly after starting out there was mention of the sunset crater volcano national monument along the road. i took a turn off and ended up here with this interesting-looking tree, with the volcano beyond it and a smattering of clouds off to the left…

“did you know? sunset crater was nearly dynamited in 1929, to create a landslide for the hollywood movie “avalanche”. local citizens were outraged and lobbied for its protection. the result was establishment of sunset crater national monument in 1930. “volcano” was added to the name in 1990.” – national park service
