This place was built to last — rock solid. Even the benches are rock solid — literally!

Next stop. Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

      If I ever get to Colorado, Joanne. I forgot a few photographs — need to stop at Canyon de Chelley first.

  2. The first image is fabulous. Really interesting place with all the “rock solid”.

    • Bo Mackison says:

      Yep, rock heavy, solid, and right on! It was an interesting stop on our trip. Trying to get this one finished so I can embark on my new travels. LOL!

  3. I agree with Wendy. I’m fascinated by the first image.

  4. Love the detail in the first image. Am so enjoying following you along in your travels!
