I'm almost down to the last few images from a bunch from March 13, 1958. Many of them were beauties, and that includes today's examples.
Howsabout this striking view of the "Saguaro Cactus Forest" portion of the Rainbow Desert. You don't see too many photos of this feature, and the this one is very nice. We even get a stack of tumbling boulders thrown in for no additional cost. Were all of the cacti really artificial?
Here's another nice one, with those strange rock formations - notice the Indian pueblos precariously perched (!) on top of that butte, and even atop one wobbling stone. The bright sunlight against that dramatic, stormy sky is really striking. John Ford should have filmed all of his movies here instead of that lame Monument Valley.
