The high desert plateau of the four corners region is a land of contrasts. A region that seems inhospitable is teeming with life and rife with history. The martian landscape bears the marks of more than a millennia of human civilization—ancient rock art is etched in the walls of deep ruddy slot canyons and long-abandoned pueblos cling tenaciously to towering mesas. The name of these historical inhabitants – the Anasazi – comes from a Navajo word meaning “the Ancient Ones,” and signs of their existence can be found across the desert.
Domes, hoodoos, fins, arches, goblins and reefs – otherworldly names which correspond to equally surreal rock formations – all are relics of the tumultuous and unique geologic history of this incredible land.
