Driving through "The Valley of the Gods", I was determined to keep track of the names of each of the major rock structures I encountered on the 17-mile drive through the valley; fanciful names like Battleship Rock, Setting Hen Butte, Rooster Rock, Castle Rock and others. Alas, soon I was overwhelmed with the scenery and gave up trying to keep track of the myriad names. Instead, I just enjoyed the views and took pictures willy-nilly - a strategy I recommend to any visitor to this place.
Viewers of this gallery are invited to send me the names of these formations using the "contact" link in the navigation bar in the home page. March 5, 2012. Nikon D700 and Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR lens at 185mm.
