During the summer of 2009, I'll help participate on a one day, 100+ mile bicycle ride with the Rapha Continental team. (I'm not sure why I'm doing this - an attempted explantion may come later.) We'll glide past ruggedly beautiful portions of northeastern Arizona, including burned-out desert land, imposing sandstone buttes and badlands, and the heights of the mountains.
I made this photograph while reconnoitering the area recently. Follow the century ride when it happens on my cycling/photography blog, via my tweets (or via the blog-gallery I've created on pbase here , which is currently empty).
