More Day 1:  Descending North Kaibab. I was smitten with the colorful canyon walls, cacti, cottonwood trees, ponderosa pines, and desert varnish! Roaring Springs is the vital water source that provides drinking water to each camp and all the visitors in the canyon. I marveled at the quietness of this trail. I truly miss it already!

Old photo. Don’t care. Spent all weekend visiting and laughing with friends, and forgetting to take photos.

I've been inspired by the colors and dripping effect that the iron or "desert varnish" creates on the ancient walls of Canyon de Chelly. So many weaving ideas and so little time!!!!

🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵🌵 NATURAL HISTORY EDUCATION EVENT: ⠀
RUST, DUST AND CRUST⠀
NOVEMBER 4 @ 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM⠀
Mustang Library ⠀ ⠀
The Hills are Alive!  If you think the desert floor is all dust, gravel and rocks, then you haven’t taken a good look beneath your feet.  The desert’s surface is full of life in the form of soil crust, lichen and desert varnish – the living things that probably cover more of the desert than any single kind of plant.  These organisms have much in common — they’re all alive (yes, even varnish), they have some components that are neither plant nor animal and living filaments that are crucial to their existence.  We’ll explore these life forms and how they enrich and protect the desert surface.⠀

While driving way down South in UT I came across this scene and pulled over to explore the light.  Would be fun to see the in all seasons. •

2,000 years of petroglyphs at Newspaper Rock near Canyonlands. Art al fresco. #canyoncountry #publiclands #moab #art #petroglyphs #rockart #desertvarnish
The dark substance on this cliff is called desert varnish. It is a thin coating that develops on exposed rocks in arid climates. Since this desert varnish is black, we know it contains a high concentration of manganese. Manganese in black desert varnish is 50 to 60 times more abundant than it regularly is in the Earth's crust. ⛰️ #findyourpark #desertvarnish #mesaverdenationalpark

We got to see this window from both sides as we hiked around this 200 foot  tall fin in the Little Grand Canyon, it would be fun to see someone climb this and rappel down the other side, slide to view the second picture for the zoomed in view if you can't pick out the window on the first pic

The view I woke up to last Wednesday morning in Virgin Spring Canyon, I loved the desert varnish stripes in the second pic, unfortunately I didn't get a shot of the awesome pictographs in here so I guess I'll have to go back

Hike buddies! ❤️🐶 Get me through this upcoming week already! I'm ready to pretend we are "city" people in Durango where we can buy beer and eat out! 🎉🍻

On the left side of this image you can see the home of a Navajo family who live in the canyon, just across the river from where we had stopped.  The varnish on the side of the sandstone cliff is clearly visible.  Desert varnish is a thin, dark coating composed of clay, minerals, oxides and hydroxides of manganese and iron along with other trace elements.  #americansouthwest #canyondechelly #desertvarnish #navajopeople

Looking up to a hole in the rock at an alcove in #MonumentValley. See the #bird? The patterns in the #desertvarnish are really cool here. You just need to look around (and up). #travel
#WhiteHouseRuin in #canyondechelly. The #desertvarnish really stands out at this particular location. There really is nothing like touring the canyon from the bottom. #travel #bnw #chinle #therez
#Utah, I'll be back! From every shape and color and arrangement of #rocks, to alpine crags, to sweltering heat, to colorful canyons, you've kind of got it all! Extra big shout out to @alpinecairns for letting me hang out and for the intro to natural navigation.

Oh my goodness, residency starts in one week so I am gearing up for the busiest time of my life. Changing times like these always make me reflect on the stability that I do have in my life- like rivers, canyons, and good friends. 🙏🏽💛 #oneweektilresidency #eightyhourworkweeks #internlife #summervacationisover #doloresriver #rivertrip #colorado #rafting #doloresrivercanyon #desertvarnish #geology #optoutside #southwest
This panel is amazing. It's a shame so much has fallen #hike #goodtimes #petroglyphs #nativeamerican #nature #arizona🌵 #rockart #desertvarnish
This wall of petroglyphs is on the way to Canyonlands National Park, Needles District. It's called "The Newspaper" or "Newspaper Rock". The majority of the petroglyphs are from around 2000 years ago etched in sandstone by Native Americans during both "the prehistoric and historic periods". Apparently, no one knows with certainty what the symbols mean. #petroglyphs #nativeamericans #newspaperrock #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #Tse'hane #utah #canyonlands #theneedles #grandcircletour #5parks #voicesofthepast #appreciation #getoutside #alongtheroad #sandstone #desertvarnish #history #preservethepast #respect

It makes all the difference to love what you do and to do what you love. It truly is good for the mind, body and soul. ....also, I get to rock a #calculatorwatch... 😝

Can't seem to transfer my ideas to the block...I think I need some feedback...or a print jam with some rad printers (
@kaileakina @bonnieandclide @lil_fox1 @moxielobster) or another week in the desert. Or a print jam in the desert.  Trying to print some desert varnish...#desertvarnish #desertrat #printmaking #woodcut #needsomeintagliotime #dropsomeacid #desertcathedral
