Desert cathedral

From HCN Flickr group contributor John Mumaw of Cortez, Colo., who writes:

"The only cottonwood tree for miles around is nurtured and protected from a harsh environment by the cool, moist soil found in this unique, teardrop shaped sandstone alcove on the Utah/Arizona border.
The hours I spent in here waiting for the light were one of the finer moments of my life."
