Arriving at Kin Kletso in the late afternoon of the clearest day,
the golden color of the sun saturated an already exquiste hue of
rock into something ineffably vibrant and deep.
Chaco Canyon, San Juan Basin, New Mexico
at first, a walk around the perimeter
revealed much (west side facing east)
the masonry towered above one's head
how compelling the forms made by the shadows and shapes
(NW corner facing E-S-E)
at this point, walking a little to the south, the moon sang out!
climbing the cliff for a birdseye view, &
looking east to Pueblos Bonito & del Arroyo
back down at the cliff's base, the shape and form of the walls again called out
Pueblo Del Arroyo
