FROM THE AMERICAN WEST
West of the 100th Meridian there are lands of vision, hope, awe and fear. Mountains that were sacred to some were a curse to others. The canyons and badlands, once described as a “heckuva place to lose a cow in”, are now favored destinations for visitors from around the world.
The American West symbolizes our sense of wonder, risk, adventure. We can find places where we imagine ourselves as one of only a few who have ever been there….places that, even though we may never visit them, assure us that there yet exists in this country an enchanting unknown.
Walk among silent red rock sentinels in Utah and Arizona, contemplate distant vistas in New Mexico, and find solitude and peace. Here is a microcosm of the endless possibilities and complexities of infinite creation.
The coincidence of light, cloud, rock and time comforts you with the feeling that there is, in this vast realm, a moment that is unique, never to be seen again.
Spend a winter night sleeping in the desert. More stars fill the sky than the grains of sand beneath your feet.
The morning brings surprise: frost that quickly evaporates in the dry air and perhaps a sunrise that ignites the high clouds and pastels the dunes.
