That's what the San Rafael is all about. Every day we passed through and around the reef, canyon, valley and the effects of the San Rafael Anticline. And everytime I see it I thought, what did the early settlers think?....what did the early explorers think?....how were they going to get past this?...what was this?...were they meant to get past it? I think of the courage, determination and perserverance of those early settlers.
Sometimes it gets a little boring to post what seems like the same photos over and over, but it really is a magical and mysterious part of the country. And if you love geology, it's a great place to visit.
