Thanks for the compliment! The entire week in the canyon was fantastic, but the hike up to Window Rock in the late afternoon was definitely a highlight. The wind was rushing through the arch. Just a great way to end the hiking day!

Thanks, Neo. I wish I could better describe the joy of scrambling up the back side of that arch to see the spring sunshine blazing through the hole in the rock. Simply incredible.

That's what I thought of when I first saw this pic. I can just see Moses in total awe of this scene. What a great shot.

Neat observation, Dean.

At that time, I guarantee you my LUNGS were burning after the ascent to this arch, but...wow, the scene in the late-afternoon light took my breath away.

Reminds me of those commercial mixers that stretch and shape colorful taffy! Your picture makes mu mouth water in more ways than one, you see. Great work, be safe.
