Exploring new ways of seeing, new ways of being with an open heart and an open mind
OOh my... I love these pics!
Love the photos and the ruins. I've seen the ones in Arizona, but not in Utah yet. Don't know about that bridge, though.
Thanks for sharing Teresa. For all of you who visit here this ruin is so cool and it's hard to do it justice. It's all legal no matter how you get pictures digitized. I have real good luck with pictures of picture as well.Unfortunately everyone the bridge is down now and this site which if I remember correctly is on the Navajo reservation and is not easily accessible if at all. As a side note as well - where the picture of the foot bridge is looking is where a few years ago the manhunt started for two crazy's that killed a cop from Cortez,Co. They fled on foot from here and one was shot and killed within a few days or less and the other was found the next spring or even two years later by a local sheepherder not that far away. Authorities searched for a long time. Never seen the Southwest and interested in Indian ruins take a trip to the 4-Corners area.
Lynn, Thanks!Linda M. These are inaccessible pretty much now. Most of the ruins I've visited are deep in canyons, but Hovenweep, near the Four Corners, is very nice and easy to access. The fruit is usually way out on the branch... :)One Fly, I had heard the bridge was gone now and I believe you'd have to access it through the rez, if allowed. There is another ruin farther down, too, which I'm sure you visited. I had heard about the shootings. Fleeing into a canyon is never a good idea...but then, neither is shooting cops.
I have no head for heights so I'm glad it was you taking the photo not Me!Hey,I see you like Lorca!Also Leonard Cohen. here are some photos I took of him at a concert in Manchester 2 or so years ago.
Amazing place! that overhang looks perilous to me... maybe moreso because of earthquakes in my country just now... and the bridge ..brave you! I've posted about the bravest thing I've ever done so far.. we live!!
Lorca, yes, and Leonard Cohen is The Man! Thanks for the link to the pics. You've probably seen the doc. "I'm Your Man." A nice look at his life and some great tribute music. Thanks for visiting.
Joan, Skydiving! I'm still thinking that might be a good idea. Brave You...Women Who Run With Wolves... :) We Live, indeed!
It seems a Willa Cather book had a similar landscape in the story.I will have to look through my shelves for the book now. Lovely area to listen to the past and future.
What a cool bridge! And the ruins are amazing. I have visited many sites but not this one...
Steve, Perhaps "Death Comes For the Archbishop," which takes place in the southwest. DJan, There are so many amazing places tucked into the corners of the SW, aren't there? Adventure everywhere.
Certainly a bridge worth crossing! And the ruins? They are now part of the landscape, and blend in so beautifully. Was that the 35mm or the artist behind the camera!So, so nice.
Bill, Good to hear from you. Maybe crossing bridges is what it's all about. They certainly are nice metaphors... Thanks for your kind words.
I like it that you let go of the ought-nots, we all need to do this.Your photos show a fantastic world, one that I don't know ...but that's where letting go of the ought-nots leads us, to unknown worlds.
Ah yes, Marilyn, to unknown worlds. They have never disappointed. Lovely thoughts. Thank you.
I'm impressed. Do you remember what you were thinking as you were halfway across? But it's OK when Harrison Ford is right behind you. Love and peace.
Hej Teresa! Great pictures. "A Bridge Across Time" says it all.Grethe
Manzanita, It got a little tough when I would look down, there were several missing boards, and the water was running faster than the photo would indicate, but it was definitely worth it. No Harrison Ford right behind me, only on person on that bridge at a time. JB crossed it, too, that day. It helps to have a friend who's equally crazy. Grethe, It's that sense of history, yet a timelessness all around, that keeps me going back for more. Thank You!
Never knew there was a bridge to that location, awesome!
Key word: was :)
