The Desert Southwest has a beauty that was totally unanticipated by a lifelong Midwesterner like me. This collection of photographs, all taken at locations within a day’s drive of The Grand, is my attempt at capturing the colors, textures, and rugged landscapes of the Desert Southwest. Red rock formations, hoodoos, canyons, and desert vistas are all represented. You will recognize familiar National Parks and Monuments, such as the Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Arches, but less frequently visited sites on Navajo and Hopi Reservations are also included. “Spirit of the Desert Southwest” invites you to enter that world of raw beauty.
