This is the kind of picture I hesistate to post...one of my favorite places in the world, but which is also largely unknown, unspoiled and undeveloped. It is on the edge of Cedar Mesa, overlooking the Goosenecks of the San Juan River in southern Utah. The layers are Pennsylvanian and Permian sediments of the Paradox Basin, and consist mostly of limestone and evaporites. It is one of the magical places of the world, and I return as often as I can. Monument Valley and the Raplee Anticline are visible in the far distance.
