Excellent comp, color and contrast Tom. Did the Chirichaua name this rock or is it named after them? A surreal landscape.

Regards, Tom

This is actually Chiricahua National Monument Tom in south eastern Arizona. It was Geronimo and Cochise's stomping grounds which is, I'm sure where the name comes from. It is a mountain island in the desert that the Chiricahua called home. I don't think this rock has a name and there are hundreds of balanced rock in the monument. If you get a chance go!!

Many thanks
