From the top of small hill I watch the horizon, like towers of rock rising out of the desert valley the mesas look ancient. I understand now the name Valley of the Gods. They do look a like gargantuan figures walking from place to place, entering a canyon here, exiting to go on a stroll to the river, there. They do look a like ancient Gods living in the desert.

To the north of me, a stone God sits. Cumulus clouds are building in this midafternoon summer sky, like they do this time of year, throughout the Colorado Plateau and the Sonoran Desert to the south
