RidgeSong of Juniper Flats
In December I was in Arizona and got to visit the Mule Mountains in Cochise County. The ridge-line above Juniper Flats is fantastic…the way it catches the light and is framed by the cloud-filled sky. What an inspiration. The way the rocks play with the light feels like music. Like a RidgeSong.
The geology of the area is interesting as well. I was curious about the formation and structure, so researched the location online and found this from a 1970 geological survey by Philip T. Hayes:
…a large faulted and intruded northwest-trending anticline. Most of the faults are high angle and pre-cretaceous.Mesozoic Stratigraphy of the Mule and Huachuca Mountains, Arizona
United States Department of the Interior Geological Survey, Philip T. Hayes, 1970
I can relate. Most of my faults are high angle, too.
