Los Estados de Utah y Colorado

Utah and Colorado were vast, largely un-inhabited, wild, desert-y and beautiful. The landscapes were dramatic — unlike anywhere I had ever been before. The arches and mesas and cliffs and canyons tell stories (to those who can interpret them) of millenia of geological activity. They also hold hints of geological activity in progress or yet to take place; the landscapes that future generations will admire, inhabit or avoid.

We saw a bunch of these little guys -- they let us get really close and posed nicely for the picture

Happy hikers!
