Grass and Power Tower Near Kayenta, Arizona
The tower has, to my eye, the look of a figure out of an Anasazi petroglyph.
Landscape Near Kayenta, Arizona
An ancient core of a long-dead volcano, a tower carrying power lines to the west, and a discarded tire tell the story and the rise and fall of nature and civilization.

Cactus Jelly at the Wonderful Cameron Trading Post
The trading post, east of the Grand Canyon, offers what seems like acres of space offering jewelry, clothing, blankets, groceries, general merchandise, great meals in the tin-roofed restaurant, and plenty of Cactus Jelly.

Mormon Tea Reaches Skyward at the Wupatki Ruins
The Wupatki Ruins - there are actually several sets of ruins - lie northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona, and not too far from massive Sunset Crater. Humans probably moved into the area not long after the eruption, in the 11th Century AD.

Sometimes I don't need to photograph an overall scene. And I didn't want to this day, because skies were gray, which I think made a poor backdrop for the ruins Instead, I concentrated on closer subjects. Most of the time at Wupatki, l employed a borrowed 180mm f/2.8 lens.

His Last Day on the Ranch
We spied a young cowboy - from Ohio - on his last day at work at a resort along the Colorado River. He graciously assented to being photographed by our group. Soon he would be back to Ohio.
