Canyon Citadel

Canyon Citadel

A crow’s eye view of an ancient defensive dwelling glows with late December light in the canyons of Cedar Mesa, Utah. A scramble from rim to ruin crosses the land bridge and circles up to the colorful patio guarded by a giant flake of balanced stone. This enigmatic face, ever watching, changing features and expression with the light, broods over the silence of a place that once bustled with activity, now abandoned and scoured by the ceaseless wind.
