I need to go there and visit this place and come up with stories that take place on some strange world where people travel around on land ships. Well, that's a part of why I'd visit, and I love the way this mesa actually does make me think of a great big land-sailing vessel. Hmmm...why has no one attempted to build big, giant boats to sail across land? Ah...maybe they did in some obscure Chip realm...more on that later. I'll have to pop back and see what else this photo tells me. This is a great shot. It's so fresh and open.
