Amid the Ramparts of the Gods

photo of the week for Monday, 2009, November 23
Photographer: Jason Brown

No matter how many times you read descriptions of the Needles District in Canyonlands National Park, or even see photos, it's hard to really appreciate the colorful, monolithic geology there until you witness it first-hand. Reader Jason Brown did just that, and offers this photo for your consideration.
