As you enter Utah’s land of canyons and domes
your sense of time gets changed. You enter geological
time. The landscape looks extremely active, yet it takes
a long time to form. It puts us humans in perspective.
The images I convey show my joy
and wonder at the interplay of water and wind on the
soft sandstone. Canyon walls are carved into whimsical
and delicate shapes. The action of waves is frozen in
the rock. Every spot is different.
There is a surprising discovery
around every bend. there is a boulder that is hollow
inside, a wall that is honeycombed, a rock face that
looks like muscles as time dropped different layers
Then you stumble on a panel of
rock art. The images are mysterious and powerful.
Ancestors have left their traces. Some may be 2000 years
old or older.
