This bottom right photograph captures a vast open view of a desert canyon. Below the skyline is a series of tall rocky formations streaked with desert varnish. This range of rocky outcroppings and plateaus starts along the bottom right corner of the photograph and then moves up the middle and across the left far off in the distance. The closest of these tall rock formations is the lowest; as the range recedes into the background, the rock walls rise higher. To the left, a dark-colored dirt desert landscape gradually slopes up into the walls along the middle. This area of ground is dotted with patches of desert grasses and winding paths of lighter dirt. The small curve of a river can also be seen on the far left of the photograph along the middle, weaving along the side of the rock wall. A great deal of vertical erosion is visible along the slopes of these outcroppings. 3-20.€ is written along the bottom of the paragraph.
