Storm clouds moving out, Arches National Park, UT

Part II of the Four Corners road trip. In total we drove around 2500 miles in 10 days. It was grueling at times, but just when you think you’ve had enough, there are views like these and people like Delphina Sells, the Navajo Medicine Woman we met at Shiprock. She was with her son, Roderick and her mother for a healing. She is a remarkably strong lady, having overcome enormous odds. Thanks to her kindness we got up close to the head of the dragon. That’s a story for another time…

Double Arch. This cannot be captured in a photograph. The scale is too overwhelming. Sound echoed like in a giant's cathedral. There are peole in this photo, they are just too small to see. We lingered here a bit because the memory here is not in the picture, it was in the feeling... Arches National Park, UT
