Skywatch Friday, October 24, 2008 Canyon de Chelly

When hubby and I arrived in Chinle, AZ, which is at the entrance to Canyon de Chelly this summer, it was during the monsoon season. The clouds were very active that afternoon. I've already posted the double rainbow that we saw this same afternoon, but this sunburst was also amazing! It is so clear up there, the air is so fresh! We love visiting Canyon de Chelly. This summer, with all the monsoon rains, the Navajo ponies were fat and well fed. There was standing water on the ground. It was a wonderful trip! Doesn't the large, dark cloud look like cotton? Please visit Skywatch for other amazing photos!

Wonderful photo. That cloud looks so heavy and full with water.

Another reason I, too, love living in the SouthWest. For our lovely and breathtaking skies :)

I wonder why that cloud doesn't fall down under it's own weight!
Great shot.
