Brief Directions

From the turnoff to Mitchell from Fossil at the river, drive about 10 miles until you see the sign, be it small, for Twickenham and its infamous International Airport. Also, if you choose to drive to the Painted hills once reaching this area, follow the road to the left and this will take you through an area where you can see the remains of a volcano and where it blew, the crater is massive. A great dirt road, maintained, one and a half lane is all...

Notes

A rock lovers wonderland. So many hues of the rock, shapes, textures, and when you capture the right lighting and weather, there is no better location for up close and personal rock and basalt images...

Description

I chose this scene for the multitude of colors and shapes presented before my lens. Throughout the Twickenham area the rock formations are excellent, especially when the thunderstorms during spring and summer converge in the area and waterfalls drop from their edges.
