High desert landscapes

There is some interesting and very pretty scenery in the border area of northern Arizona and southern Utah. Here are a few photos taken there last week when a small clearing occurred in the sky. On clear, sunny days the views there are very picturesque but on the day I traveled through the sky clouded up and was very drab. I was disappointed, but it couldn’t be helped. Maybe next time…

Yucca

Just outside of Page Arizona at about 4600 feet elevation near the Utah border these were blooming. I believe they are a type of Banana Yucca (Yucca baccata).
