This image is shot at an overlook on the road on the way out of Mesa Verde in southwest Colorado. If you know your early North American history you may know of this place and the history of its inhabitants living in and among the cliffs in the area. I knew of them before we visited and knew alot more after we did some walking and climbing tours. If you are in this part of the States, it's worth a visit. Some details here at the National Park website: http://www.nps.gov/meve/
The road in and out of the National Park is windy and steep but some of the views are amazing. It's the American West so of course the views are amazing. The skies really don't look like this in the part of the country I live.
