Cottonwood Cove, South Coyote Buttes
It was here I began to lose it. Every new turn opened up evolutionary pages, volumes of time, and the beauty of it overwhelmed me. The tears came as I touched the petrified dunes, the dinosaur tracks and the fragile, eroding shelves of sandstone as if it were all written in an ancient braille and I was reading the landscape with my fingertips. My guide had been here hundreds (maybe thousands) of times and knew the place I was in. He smiled and said it best, "If this place doesn't inspire you I'm not sure what will."
