Shiprock Feeder Flows

January 13, 2012

I've been cleaning out my studio and finding a bunch of photos. Here's two I shot out of a charter flight from Telluride, Colorado back to Phoenix in the mid-nineties. We were doing a live radio show from Telluride and on the way back I got this amazing overview of Shiprock on the Navajo res. Someone told me those two long ridges are actually feeder flows of lava going up into the volcanic neck that cooled and became Shiprock. Pretty cool, no?

The bottom photo is of Meteor Crater east of Flagstaff, Arizona. Not hard to imagine the rock that created that hole wiping out a wide swath of living things (some believe it created a gaseous cloud that wiped out all life at that time, which included the dinosaurs.

I mentioned that I have used my kids as models ever since they were tykes. Here's T. Charles Bell posing as a young, outlaw kid in front of the pump house, just north of our house.

And here's a haphazard trio, Charles Waters, BBB and Steve Price on the sitdown bass, playing a MCUHS high school reunion in Kingman in 1984 (for the class of 1964). That's Wendell Havatone and Jan Prefontaine sitting in.

And, here's Los Famdamos getting ready to jump in the air for our 1986 Christmas card photo.

Our house had just been completed by John Glenn and crew and we were getting ready to move in (note the Pella window sticker on studio window). Left to right: Thomas Charles, Kathy Sue, Deena Bean, BBB and Dusty.
