In this view looking northeast, the levels of consciousness are:
1) Amphitheater floor (grass, sagebrush, and cow pies);
2) Head of the explorer (non-functioning area due to its
being overwhelmed by the scenery);
3) Shelf ("level" area just above the big shadow; location
of San Juan County Road 142);
4) Mesa at top (location of Dead Horse Point State Park).
San Juan County Road 142 (casually but incorrectly called “Shafer Trail”), curves around this amphitheater.
This image would not have been possible without the level and
conscious support of my personal assistant, Joe Tripod.
