Petrified Forest, AZ

Time leads to life;
life leads to death;
death leads to gem.

Canyon De Chelly, AZ

A scar on Arizona recalls stigmas, specters, and nauseas of massacres from “how-a-west-was-won”; Canyon De Chelly witnessed Navajos resisting against dress-blues, white pursuers, Kit Carson’s troops; this sanctuary knows that History’s heaves still ooze through the red Rocks In The Canyon — also known as Canyon De Chelly — and speculates, are healed the scars?

Ouray County, CO

I met heart, help, and true peace in West-Colorado; I met “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the area of Ouray, Colorado, and Ridgway; Ridgway, Colorado, where John Wayne used to daily booze after his daily act on the True Grit movie set, shot in downtown Ouray; Ridgway, where the Duke used to daily plant his genuine grit into what thence became the True Grit Cafe, and to dive into the dialogues learning of the scenes for the next day shooting, or to drown into the eternel memories of behind the scenes with endless dialogues.

That is truth; In Colorado, in Ouray County, I met true grit and friendship spirit . . . and John Billings, the dude who cast the Grammy Awards, somewhere in Ridgway, CO.

Arches, UT

Dizzy, the hiker thought, “This is a fascinating question of timing; Earth is round, and winds swirl, and the Earth turns, and the winds carve the Earth, and mold it, to be bridges, at the tempo of the time’s tic tac.”

Happy, but tired, but insane, but dizzy, I, the hiker, left the Delicate Arch and the coarse crust of the Arches National Park of Utah, to return to Colorado.

Hiker. Tired hiker. Driver. Happy driver. Me. Dizzy eye.

Canyonlands, UT

Little figures climb a dark surface, and all around, the sun dries the mud, or the rain caresses the cliffs, or both at the same time. The buttes and the mesas pop up the land, and the rivers meet and shape the canyons, shape the Canyonlands National Park. Marks show our ancestors stood there, as the presence of the little climbers populates the skin of a cliff modern scholars named “Newspaper Rock”, proclaimed it a State Historic Monument. The crazed climbers build a mysterious wall in an area where we tourists are so little.
