Two more images from Dinosaur National Monument, CO & UT

NTS,

Two more DNM imgaes. The first shows me and the largest pinyon pine I've seen. The second image speaks for itself.

If you've never been to Dinosaur National Monument, I highly recommend visiting it. It is much, much more than just dinosaur fossils, although that would be sufficient, and the displays are excellent. However, the monument offers an unending sequence of spectacular vistas.

the west is so exciting for so many reasons- in that second photo showing the tilted strata- to be able to see the geologcial structures, especially if you have some understanding of geology, really gives you the sense of the immense power of the Earth, to move the crust of the Earth like that....

Larry,

Shucks, you found my secret. A good lens works wonders.

Joe,

Yes, geology is alive and exciting out here. You see Mother Earth crafting the landscape. So much to see. So much to learn.
