Square Butte, Arizona   2 comments

I thought I had researched every mile of our Arizona trip.  The drive along Arizona 98 from Page, where I had photographed in Antelope Canyon, to Monument Valley was supposed to be long, flat and boring.  High plains desert worthy of Clint Eastwood and Eli Wallach.  No guide-book or photography website mentioned a geologic feature called Square Butte.  So it was a wonderful surprise to see the butte rising in front of us as we traveled east.  I was able to take a dozen or more photos before the gathering clouds turned into a short cloud burst and chased me back to the car.

To this day a Google image search yields relatively few photos of Square Butte.  I can’t explain why.  It is right off the highway and a worthy subject for any photographer’s lens.

  2. No thanks, Rob. Standing on the edge is one thing. Hanging off the side is something totally different!!
