Ya know, that ol' Rainbow Desert sure was a popular subject for shutterbugs. Some say that the desert heat drove 'em plum loco! I seen it happen.
I've seen so many pictures of these buttes and natural arches that they now seem like old friends. Some of my best friends are rocks. They are easier to get along with than most people! Even my mule (Fred) gets along with them, and he doesn't like anybody.
I dream of someday building a series of shops here. I will call it a "strip mall". There will be a nail salon, a frozen yogurt place, a Panda Express, a Starbucks, and a Supercuts. And it will all be air conditioned.
The rocks to our right are rare examples of "tumbling rocks". They sway and turn with the wind and the vibrations from our passing train. I haven't figured out how to make money from these yet, but dagnabit, I will, eventually.
