The American Southwest
The American Southwest is an
environment of extremes. It can be blazingly hot or, believe it
not, very very cold. Either way, it is an unforgiving domain for
the unprepared. It's sandstone and limestone formations tell us
that this area was once under water. These soft materials have
eroded into the majestic red-and-gold hued "hills", "pillars" and
"mountains" we see today.
