Wow, you really caught something there, Dean. Not only the storm, and a rainbow, but great color in the sky and foreground, too. Very nice!

This is White Mesa. sacred to the Jemez Indians. It is the site of a gypsum mine.
Positioning Comment by DaveO
I see the west ridges of Rampart Hills-Laplata Mountains in the distance to the north/NW. This is US 160, a few minutes east of Mancos, Colorado. The varied terrain of the Four Corners can be confusing at times :-)
Thanks Dave, appreciate your help!
as close to heaven as you can get on earth. thanks for sharing. I would love to live up there.peace.
Well, I poked around near the top too. First was a BLM Site, Head Canyon Vehicle Competition Area, which seemed strangely small for its apparent purpose, with access farther east blocked by a fence and locked gate... apparently British Petroleum owns the land.
Farther south on the Bisit Highway I came to another dirt road... this ended at another gate and fence, which looked new. Sign indicated it was also owned by B-Square Ranch. This was due west of the trail head photo you have on here. I hopped the fence and walked about 20 yards to a nice overlook of the canyon, and the road going down into it.
I imagine in the 1980s access was easier, before all the hysteria over liability and litigation. It's a shame, since the bluffs are the most attractive feature of Farmington, but the only publicly-accessible areas are overrun with and scarred by ATVs. Maybe Bolack has conservation plans for this property?
