This old cottonwood stands as a testament to the harsh conditions of the desert southwest. Often found along washes where they find enough moisture in the water table to survive, occasionally they take root on the bench lands. Rattlesnakes take shelter among the fallen branches, so hikers beware. This one was found while hiking in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Concentric exfoliation and desert varnish along the Paria River.  The Paria headwaters are along the cliffs of Bryce Canyon. It gains in magnificence as it flows towards the confluence with Buckskin Gulch and then dissipates in a broad cliff lined valley before joining the Colorado River at Lees Ferry. Crossed by a couple of highways and accessible by many dirt roads, it hides its charms well from the less adventurous.

We all know where this is!  This is Arizona, and technically, not in Utah, but oh so close....and I've never seen a border out there anyway.  It's all beautiful country!  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Darkness, no, blackness drifts over the Maze in Canyonlands National Park after dropping torrential rain over Hite. Storms like this create thunder and lightning that rattles around inside your skull like a pinball and bring winds that will lift a full 5 gallon water container 4 feet in the air off a portable table (I witnessed this and my table ended up 100 yards down a wash)! Both terrifying and exhilarating, these monsoonal cells have to be experienced to be believed. As it should be!  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Valley of the Gods far down below while my head is in the clouds atop the Moki Dugway in southern Utah.  Valley of the Gods was the first place in Utah where I went off the beaten path years ago and I carry those enchanted memories when I didn't understand this landscape. There is a first time for everything and few experiences live up to the second billing; thank you southern Utah for renewing me every time I venture out.

Darkness looms over Trachyte Creek and the fins to the west of Hite in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.  The previous day, a storm similar to this one walloped us with hail.  We watched this one closely and realized it was moving off to the north and proceeded on to our day of wandering.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

One of the hundreds of photos, both digital and film, that I've shot over the years at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah.  I feel fortunate that during my first visit, I was able to be there alone.  Imagine that!  Beautiful location with stunning effects; not much more to be said.

A more pulled back view of Owachomo Natural Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument. Owachomo is the oldest, most delicate and easiest to get to of the three bridges in the monument, although this view requires a little willingness to wander.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Couple of pine trees divining sustenance from a crack in the cross bedded sandstone of the eastern section of Zion National Park.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.
