The American Institute of Architects gave the Chapel its Award of Honor in 1957. In the sculptor’s words, “Though Catholic in faith, as a work of art the Chapel has a universal appeal. Its doors will ever be open to one and all, regardless of creed, that God may come to life in the souls of all men (and women) and be a living reality.”
Afternoon clouds scud across the sky at Lees Ferry in Northern Arizona. Here, Navajo Bridge crosses Marble Canyon, one of the most used starting points for journeys through the Grand Canyon, via the Colorado river. It is also the route to Jacob’s Lake, and 40 miles further south, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
This is the Chapel of Holy Cross in Sedona, Arizona.
A dramatic view of the drop off in water depth at Lake Mead from the Turbine section of Hoover Dam. The man made Lake created by the Dam has served as a vital fresh water supply to not only the nearby Las Vegas Valley, but also to San Bernardino, Northern Arizona and Phoenix area as well. Some 20 million or so people use this run off of the Colorado River for everyday living. Sadly, water levels cannot keep up with the overgrowth of the areas it supplies and most likely will one day run dry, unless a solution is in the works, we may be looking at the potential to experience the largest ghost towns the western hemisphere has ever seen.
The Pat Tillman memorial bridge which crosses the CO river just South of Hoover dam. The remarkable thing about this shot is that the bridge is always extremely crowded yet for a few seconds I had this opportunity to photograph the walkway with NO people on it!
