This sandstone spire stands 750 feet high in Canyon de Chelly National Monument in northeastern Arizona. Canyon de Chelly is located within the Navajo Nation and has been a part of the Navajo's teachings for many years. Spider Rock gets its name from the legend of Spider Woman, who according to legend inhabited the rock. She was the first to weave her web of the universe and taught the Navajo to create beauty in their own life and spread the "Beauty Way" teaching of balance within the mind, body & soul. ref: canyondechelly.net/sto…

In Utah's Cedar Breaks National Monument the Amphitheater displays rows of hoodoos extending into the distance. Some are well formed and some are just starting to emerge from sedimentary layers which started forming in the Paleozoic age some 543 million years ago. How fortunate we are to be able to witness that beauty.

Utah is a treasure trove of colorfully earthy landscapes, and Cedar Breaks National Monument is one of those treasures. It is located east of Cedar City just off Cedar Canyon Road (Hwy 14) on Hwy 148. At first sight we immediately thought of Bryce Canyon, another of Utah's treasures. It does have hoodoos like Bryce and rich colors, but the density of hoodoos and the overall park size is somewhat less. We did enjoy the our short visit to Cedar Breaks and added it to the list of places to capture a great sunset since the canyon faces west.
