Plateau Light

The Colorado Plateau is a land rich in red sands, chocolate crags, eternally translucent skies, and stunning canyons. The region inscribes the deserts, mountains, rivers, and high mesas of the four corners of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. David Muench has walked this land---the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Canyon de Chelly, Bryce Canyon National Park, Mesa Verde, Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Grand Staircase / Escalanate National Monument --- and has retruend wit the unforgetable images that are presented in this book. PLATEAU LIGHT focuses on the heart and soul of America's Redrock Country, expressing the beauty and wilderness of areas ranging from the Grand Canyon to Paria. These landscapes once inspired the Anasazi, Fremont and Archaic peoples and serve as the perfect background for the petroglyphs and ruins they left behind. For the first time in softbound edition, these spectacular photos will inspire, delight and amaze, both readers and photographers alike. Each plate has a thumbnail image with David Muench's photo notes in the back of the book. Winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award, Travel Category, 1999
