    • Thank you, Robyn. The title was the first thing that came to my mind when looking at the rocks from the side of the road out in the canyon…looks just like a castle. Thank you for your nice comment. 🙂

  6. Wow, what a place. It’s hard to find that kind of rugged beauty here in New Hampshire. We’ve been eroding longer, or have more wet weather, or something.

    • Thank you, Allen…and yes, from what I know of your part of the country, ours is quite different. We can see some volcanic evidence in ours, glacier paths, and even sand-stone/sedimentary rock on mountain tops around here. Kinda crazy. 🙂

    Did you have to walk somewhere to see this? If so, I’m out. Where is American Fork Canyon? In Utah? I thought that place was a salt lake. It’s a wonderful shot with the sun on it just right. It is reminiscent of castles, sure enough. Your delicate sensibilities showing here like a bit of lace at the cuff in the old days. Nice.

    • I actually took this from the side of the road, George…and American Fork Canyon is just a bit south of the Salt Lake City metro area. It’s on the northern end of the Provo/Orem area. Thank you for your sweet comment, George…delicate sensibilities. 🙂

        Well, it’s true. You are a sensitive man.

        • You are precious, George. 🙂

  8. It looks like a magnificent Citadel! A mighty fortress watching over its domain.

    • It sure does, Steven…thank you. So nice to see you here again. 🙂

  9. Very sharp and on the cutting edge! Great shot. 😉

    • Thank you, Nancy. 🙂

  10. Great picture Scott, the ‘little’ tree at the top gives a real sense of scale. It looks as though there must have been an eagle soaring thermals up above!

    • Thank you, Finn…I know we do have eagles in the area, so I’m sure it wouldn’t be too uncommon to see one soaring up there. I’ll have to keep a closer eye-out for them. 🙂

  11. Such an appropriate title – very regal!

    April 15, 2012 at 10:50 am

    • Thank you, Cathy…it was only a castle in my mind when I first saw it.

      April 15, 2012 at 3:11 pm

  12. Stopped me in my tracks…just beautiful!!!

    April 15, 2012 at 10:00 pm
