FC: Where Time Stopped the American Southwest
1: Earth's Embroidery With the inks of its showers and rains, With the quill of its lightning, With the hand of its clouds, Winter wrote a letter upon the garden, in purple and blue. No artist can ever conceive the like of that. And this is why the earth, grown jealous of the sky, Embroidered stars in the folds of the flower-beds. Solomon Ibn Gabirol Malaga, Spain - 1021 - 1058 | This book is a photo tour of our trip (June 27 - July 9, 2010) to the American Southwest. The landscape in this region bears testimony to the handiwork of the Creator of the Universe, Who's paintbrush is like no other. Enjoy, Ari & Chaya

74: The Hoodoos of Bryce The soft rock in the valley of Bryce Canyon led to the formation of the hoodoos. Some of these hoodoos are hundreds of feet tall. The name "hoodoo" originates from the Anasazi which means human. They believed that the people who settled in the valley turned to stone. Many of the rock formations (with enough imagination) have a human appearance.
