Tree in Slot Canyon at Tent Rocks National Monument

Erosion has washed away the rocks and soil under the ponderosa pine hanging onto the rock walls in the main slot canyon at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. One of my favorite trees in the world to photograph.

Tunnel to the Sky

This winter, I revisited a slot canyon at Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico that I photographed a few years ago. The eroded tube of rock in this vertical panorama sits to the left of the main slot. I keep coming back to this area because the repeating patterns of layered ash lead the eye upwards to a small window of winter sky above.
