Chaco and the wind

So if you're at the Pueblo Bonito overlook at Chaco Canyon on a really windy day, just remember to not get too close to the edge, OK?
I was kneeling, fooling with my camera, and a big gust knocked me backward, onto the rock. If I'd been a little closer ... And what was I doing taking pics anyway? There was so much dust in the air you could barely see Pueblo Bonito below.
This morning was a lot mellower. Had a nice hike and left Chaco going south, stopping briefly at a self-serve jewelry booth (seriously) just before the highway near Crownpoint.

  1. Right, that much dust in the air and you had your camera out? Nice time to leave it tucked and wait for the dawn light. On, On.
