In the Spotlight: House of Rock

Cliffdwellers, Arizona is a really trippy place to visit.  Apparently, back at the turn of the last century, some settlers decided to make this location on US 89 their home up against the Vermilion Cliffs.  They decided to dig out ‘homes’ under the large boulders that dot this location.

In the Spotlight: Castle Butte

I was out taking photographs of the Little Painted Desert along Arizona 87 just north of I-40.  The light wasn’t the greatest, so I began to look for some scenes where the light would work better. As I drove down AZ87, I saw these buttes, the first is called Castle Butte, and the near-dusk light lit up the red rock …
