Pictures: Busy day yesterday, I’ll start with a couple of pictures I took of Shiprock from a distance and in midday. Not a ease place to get to because it is on Navajo land.

Here is a quote from this Site I found

“it shouldn’t be too hard to find (see map). Not so. We got local directions in the town of Shiprock. Then we drove until we found someone else of whom to ask directions. The we drove some more and asked directions. The problem is that we could see Ship Rock but couldn’t find a way to get within miles of it except up a private dirt road ”

This first shot is from a very long ways off but I like it.

This one a little closer taken from about 4 miles west of the city of Shiprock. Not sure how far from Shiprock itself, but some miles for sure.

Weather: It is raining a lot today. It is without a doubt a good thing for NM, needs all the rain it can get.

Night folks

  1. Everything I know about Shiprock and the Four Corners area come from reading the Navajo novels by Tony Hillerman. Not anywhere near the same as being there 😦

    1. When we started out on the trip my friend said we’ll going by Shiprock, and I didn’t think much about it till I seen it and then it clicked “hey that is Shiprock” . Had I give it a bit more thought, I’d brought more camera gear, like a longer lens and maybe a second camera. No matter, I enjoyed seeing it 🙂

  2. It’s a beautiful rock formation for sure, and you composed the images very well with the limitations you had.

    Send some rain our way too please! A biologist/birder I follow says there’s a promising El Nino forming in the Pacific. They said that last year too, but I hope he’s right this year!
