Good shot and great landscape. Happy new Year

Greetings AcheG. I guess we lose track of some of our posts. It is interesting that after nearly two years yours is the first comment this picture ever generated.

This was taken at Canyon de Chelly in northeastern Arizona; probably the most spiritual place I've ever visited. Thanks for your comment and thanks too for bringing this shot back to my own attention.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hi Hanks. I hope to return in USA next summer. I know Bryce Canyon, Zion park, lake Powell, Monument Valley. I do not know the canyon of Chelly. Do you know others remarkable sites in visiting in the region? Greetings from Paris

Hank Waxman on December 31, 2008

Absolutely! I've attached a link to what is called The Grand Circle of the American Southwest. Google the phrase and you will find many more sites including some with photos.

As mentioned, IMHO, Canyon de Chelly is a must, if you can get to that part of Arizona. It is a couple of hours south of Monument Valley. Cliff dwellings are the featured attraction there, and the other major site for such dwellings is Mesa Verde in Southwest Colorado.

You've covered much of Utah already, so much of what I'm suggesting might cause you to retrace your steps. Use the link and other sites to select your goals.

Utah (or access from Utah) Arches, Capitol Reef, Grand Canyon, North Rim (Summer Only),

Arizona Antelope Canyon (by Page, AZ) Rainbow Bridge (Lake Powell from the West) Grand Canyon (South Rim)

There are many, many more, but these are major sites. You can also check the Panoramio tags for these places, and feel free to ask for more as you move through this process.

Dramatic scenery indeed Hank ~ I love the lighting in the foreground, especially on that great slab of freestanding rock with the track winding by it. Very well caught Sir. Ciao nick

Greetings Nick. This was a lucky-for-the-time-of-day moment. We arrived at Canyon de Chelly too late in the day for the tour which follows those paths you see down in the valley, so we spent the late afternoon driving the rim road for shots like this.

Had I arrived earlier I would never have had this opportunity.
