• An Edited Interview with Jon Ortner from Kodak's ProPass Magazine, March 2010
Straddling the borders of Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico, the Colorado Plateau is a stark and magnificent wilderness featuring the most breathtaking collection of multicolored landforms found anywhere on earth. Time-worn canyons, mesas, and vast windswept deserts form a great expanse of exposed rock formations. Buttes, towers, spires, hoodoos, arches, windows, fins, domes, bridges, and badlands comprise a surreal world of color-infused rocks, tinted soils, and shimmering sand dunes. This remarkable assemblage of geological diversity and spectacular beauty attracts millions of U.S. and foreign travelers every year. Jon Ortner takes the reader to all the famed locations, including the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Petrified Forest, as well as less-accessible and relatively unexplored tribal lands and slot canyons.
These images will not fail to astonish and humble with their power and stunning grandeur.
