I actually live very close to this area and let me tell you it is quite beautiful. There is tons of wild life to go along with the landscape, just watch out for rattle snakes. This picture was actually taken at the painted hills while I was out doing some field work for a geology class. I got there in the late afternoon and it was my last stop after a very long day. The lighting wasn't perfect as it would have been better at sunset or sunrise but I still loved going there. Hopefully here soon I'll head out just for this location and get some shots with better lighting.
