And then there are the ancient Anasazi ruins that remain in the shadow of these massive towering giants. Tucked up into the cliff, just a micro dot in the photo lets you know just how small we are in the scale of things. Wow!

Many have asked who we use for guides. We don’t use guides but this particular day, we went out with our best friend’s cousin who does guide photographers. With his permission, I’m providing your with his information because as you’ll see this week, he delivers! His name is Jerome Richards and you can reach him at 928.429.7653. Tell him Moose sent ya, you won’t regret it!
