thanks, everyone!

photos seldom give you the sense of scale of the place... those buttes are huge! most are between 500 and 900 feet tall, rising abruptly from the flat desert floor. it's really quite something to see in person. these shots of The Mittens were taken from almost a mile away...

Great captures, the world has so many great things to photograph and just not enough time
