October is a beautiful month along the Rio Chama.  The cottonwoods light up in a display of autumn color and the Jemez mountains glow upon the horizon.



A hill marks the vast and monotonous Utah landscape on another sun baked day.

Arches National Park in Utah is home to numerous gigantic sandstone formations.




Dale Beckman

The summer clouds put on a huge display in Colorado"s San Juan Valley.

Arches National Park is known for it's sweltering heat.  Names given to several rock formations reference Hell as ones geographic location.

Some of the land formations in Utah tower high above the desert floor.

The smoke from the California forest fires lends it's own mystic to the Pedernal as the sun begins to set and another day lays down to rest.

Arches National Monument is a sculpture garden in an arid land under pristine blue skies.

Plaza Blanca or White City, is an area in the Abiquiu valley where fantastic white rock formations inhabit the land.  It has been the set for several western and some science fiction movies.  It does have an other worldly persona.

Where I cross the Rio Grande

Ink and pastel on paper

"Where I cross the Rio Grande", is an image that I drew on location in ink and then I added the color to it in my studio.  The location is just outside of Pilar, New Mexico in, "The Taos Box", which is famous to rafters for it's white water rapids.  It is in the infamous Taos Gourge.  This location has a bridge that crosses the Rio Grande.

I drew this on location in Plaza Blanca.  I did the drawing in ink and I had to come back and finish the drawing on a second day.  Later I colored in the black ink drawing with color pastel.
