For the Friday photo this week, we head back to Moab, then south to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. The workshop my Dad and I were on took us to the Dugout Ranch, where we met Heidi – every bit the archetypal western rancher. She was kind enough to let us shoot around her ranch – this is just one of a really cool series of images of this iconic area.
This week’s Friday Photo takes us back to Moab, and one of the collection of petroglyphs that can be found in the area. These prehistoric artifacts are under attack by the elements and the ravages of time. Worse, they’re also vulnerable to criminals who deface them for souvenirs or with graffiti. This one, on a wall above a stream, is largely intact, but we’ll never know what the rest of the tale says.
