Canyon Wilderness of the Southwest free pdf This title is shot in more than 50 locations across a 130,000-square-mile area, straddling the borders of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The Colorado Plateau is a magnificent wilderness featuring the most breathtaking collection of multicoloured landforms found anywhere on earth. Timeworn canyons, mesas, and vast windswept deserts form a great expanse of exposed rock formations- buttes, towers, spires, hoodoos, arches, windows, fins, domes, bridges, and badlands comprise a surreal world of colour infused wonders. This remarkable assemblage of geological diversity and spectacular beauty attracts millions of visitors every year. The photographer takes the reader to all the famed locations, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Petrified Forest, as well as less-accessible and relatively unexplored tribal lands and slot canyons.
