​​Echo Amphitheater, Rio Arriba County, NM
Driving back from the San Juans it's always a  pleasant break to stop at the Echo Canyon Amphitheater where blood red varnish drapes down the slick amphitheater walls. The yellowish- whitish sandstone cliffs of the Entrada Formation are capped by a distinctive horizon of gypsum, the Todilto Formation. It's a lovely short walk from the BLM car park into the amphitheater where you can call out and hear the echoes softly return.
​I began to work with this photo after a lovely road trip through the Four Corners in the fall of 2016. My final stop before I reached civilization was Echo Amphitheater.
