Guided by Mesas

Guided by Mesas

Stepping across the valley, Monitor Mesa and No Mans Mesa provide a firm footing for our journey. Each of these grand mesas is followed by other unique mesas and smaller buttes. These stepping stones help us interpret the landscape and its once flowing mass. Unlike stones that have been separated, compressed and smoothed in their motion toward the surface before being swept from their source by rapid moving water, these earthen structures are immovable. Their shapes are the result of the stubbornness with which they face the forces of erosion. As we look at the living landscape, we are guided on our journey by the currents that have revealed these structures and exposed the soul of the desert.
