Imagine a place where wind carves rock into canyons of light. Imagine a place where time is told in the stratigraphy of stone. Imagine a place where ravens fly through arches of petrified sand, carved by the wind. This is the erosional landscape of the Colorado Plateau, where Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado converge in a region known as the Four Corners, and where the artist’s palette of red rock suggests you’re closer to Mars than to Earth. In the harsh, arid heart of the American Southwest, one drinks deeply from this wellspring of wonder.
