I was there years ago on a geology field course.  We got only as close as the top picture.  Spent a good hour talking about the origin, rock composition, etc.  Impressive, to say the least.

Odd, though - the thing I remember the most was a half-decomposed horse carcass about 30 feet from the road...  :o   although our noses were assaulted, it didn't take away from the awe of being there...

In the summer of '83 a buddy and I left Texas and spent the better part of July climbing and Jeeping around the San Juan's between Silverton, Ouray and Telluride.  On the way back we decided to go by The Rock and arrived around sundown.  We took a road off to the West that cut through one of the radial dikes that cut to the south, pulled over and climbed up on it under a full moon and took pictures looking down the moonlit-bathed dike.  I'll see if I can find those photos and post a couple.

Good job Robert! One of these years I will make it down for this event.

One of the nice things I remember about this area was the low traffic levels. Miles of quiet and scenic roads.

Just wanted to say the photos are spectacular as usual. May need an 18 month calendar.
There's always next year. Although pics can only be in a calendar once (at least until I change the rules, which ain't likely), they can be nominated in different years. So, everyone is welcome to review previous nominations and re-nominate their faves that didn't make the top 13. :)
This thread has me missing Big Bend. I would like to explore these parts.
