Tower of Babel, Arches National Park
I was on the road for 2 weeks in the Southwest back in 2002. I was hitting 4 states, Arizona, Utah, Colorado and and New Mexico. I was most excited for New Mexico, but Utah is what surprised me the most. It was such a mind blowing state, and the sunsets were to die for.
Unfortunately, I didn’t plan a lot of time for Utah. But I managed to get Zion, Capital Reef, Moab, and Arches in just a couple days. At Arches, this immense mass of Entrada Sandstone emerged up from the depths of some ancient sea and loomed over the desert floor. In awe, I took out my 4×5 and lined up a shot.
