All of the geological structures around here have names, but I can't place this one exactly and haven't taken the time to retrace just where it was. It looks to me like a South American ziggurat, only this one was carved in the layers and layers of Arizona sedimentary rock by wind and water. I looked through some geological history videos describing the process and found a good one that I included below.
I took a little time with this photo, cropping and retouching it to bring out the features. I left it really large, so I think it's worth a click. Enjoy!
Isn't it amazing what the 'little' cameras can do? I have a Canon G7, it's just fantastic, I use my Nikon D7100 less and less. If it only had a viewfinder as well as the screen......
O/T but I found this amusing. The Brits are big on nick names.
From Wikipedia on John Eliot Gardiner the conductor:
In his spare time, Gardiner runs an organic farm at Springhead near Fontmell Magna in North Dorset, which was established by his great uncle, composer Henry Balfour Gardiner. His continued involvement in this project has earned him the nickname 'Uphill Gardiner' as a consequence of his unorthodox farming methods.
