Badlands & Domelands (4 photos)

In January I visited the “Domelands” area in the Coyoto Mountain Wilderness again with my friend Hans. The “Domelands” itself are an area of wind carved sandstone domes with gorgeous views of the twisted mud hill maze of the Carrizo Badlands to the north, and Carrizo Mountain to the east.

From the Domelands, we continued our hike into an unnamed wash that led us down into the mud hills of Carrizo Badlands, and from there we hiked into Andrade Canyon, an impressive wash with towering walls and fascinating stone formations (more from there later, but my photo of the month for January “Temps Mort” is from there). On the way back we had to hike around an impassable dry-fall which led to quite a bit of unexpected extra exercise. Good thing I had a map, compass and headlamp.

Once again
we were lucky with the weather – it was mostly overcast and we had beautiful, even light on the landscape, with the occasional play of light and shadows. On our way back it began to rain but except for the rocks becoming quite slippery in some places (which led to the dry-fall being impassable) it was no problem. A highly enjoyable day in the desert!

I’m splitting the photos into a couple of separate posts to create sets that work together, unified by treatment and/or subject. To begin with, here are four black & white verticals from the Domelands area.
