The Goosenecks of the San Juan River are quite amazing. It has been suggested that the river, trapped in what geologists call an 'entrenched meander' has to travel about 6 miles to make 1 mile of progress.
Canyonlands, beautiful desolation, Utah

Bryce Canyon, Utah

Bryce Canyon National Park is Utah is not really in a canyon. The amphitheatres, which contain the unique figures, are eroded from the side of a mesa. Depending upon the amount of moisture on the rocks, and the time of day, the colours will range from dull browns to perfect soft, pastel colours.

Antelope Butte, Wyoming

The Sunlight Basin area in Wyoming is the site of the slippage of very large landmasses along a fault lying on the west side of the Beartooth Range. Here small mountains have slid from their source near Cooke City, as much as 60 miles towards the plains to the east. Here, Antelope Butte, one of the small chunks, makes an attractive photo.
