Wrinkles in the Landscape: Moab

Moab and the Canyonlands

The deep wrinkles on the sandstone of the Utah desert warm and humanize the barren scene as we reach approach Moab. The cut-stone character of this face bares the wisdom of ages washed clean by receding tides and millennia of erosion. The Colorado River winds through the rocks and eventually leads us into the Canyonlands, but here we see the unheralded earthscape surrounding Kane Creek as it peels off and forms its canyon to the south, meandering toward an unnamed horizon.
