"Fallen Roof Ruin"
March 2012, Cedar Mesa, Utah
Perched high in an alcove above Road Canyon, this colorful 800-year old Anasazi ruin is one of the most photogenic in all of Cedar Mesa. Fallen Roof gets its name from huge pieces of stone which have fallen to the ground like giant tiles. The alcove roof in the center of this image reveals an underlying orange layer where it was once black. If you were to flip over one of the huge tiles on the ground, they would be completely black.
