Kansas: Konza Prairie Valley lookout, a place the pioneers went though
Pronghorns in the morning light
These dunes are very tall, the "little fuzz" on top are visitors !
Many rocks in precarious equilibrium !
Note, in the bottom left, the 2 tourists that help give a scale to the rocks
The petrified dunes
The balanced rock
I was too short of breath to visit most arches but they look tempting
Hard place to grow for a tree
The delicate arch
The next morning we had pleasant sunshine for a few hours
Designs in the sandstone
Tiny people in big landscape
The double arch
But then obscured by a snowstorm !
These rocks looked like layered chocolate cake with dusting of confectioner sugar !
Pretty snow covered tree
The dome that inspired the pioneers to name the place Capitol Reef. I would have voted for a more feminine part !
Beautiful snow covered valley
On the way to Salt Lake City Utah
Almost looks like the North Pole !
