The View from Blue Mesa



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

This is a view of the Painted Desert as seen from Blue Mesa in the Petrified Forest National Park. The mesa gets its name from the layers of blue clay that make it up. Some of that blue clay can be seen in the valley below the mesa.

Love the blue sky too George.

Nice falls and that flower from your yard is so crisp and sharp.

Also love your Header George.

Its such a beautiful view, George. At first glance I though the blue was water so I enlarged it and then read about the blue clay.
Be well n Happy,
Pam

I just want to reach out and touch the ground to see what it feels like. Beautiful place.

I wonder if anyone has ever walked on the surface. It just looks so pure - kinda like looking at the moon.

What a great display of desert scenery. Interesting about the blue clay giving Blue Mesa its name.

Hello George,
Gosh your photos are beautiful in quality to view.
The Blue Mesa is intriguing. Wondrous experience enlarged. To the right the shaping gives the impression to me of Ocean's last rippling shore wave.
Will be a pleasure to return and explore your Journey further.
Thank you from Magda and Family in Australia
