Sunday Photo(s)

From last summer, here are a couple of panoramas of Montezuma Well, in northern Arizona. The first is a wide shot of the place:

Montezuma Well is an oasis in the northern Arizona desert. In the summer, it's a welcome piece of temperate real estate, particularly the portion near the outflow of the spring. The indigenous people of the area liked it, too. It is the site of many ruins of old stone dwellings:

Some of those dwellings were a challenge to get to. Here's a look at some that were built along the wall of the well:

These are somewhat visible in the first panorama, a little to the left of center. Here's a picture of the "back" of the well, where the spring flows out into the surrounding desert:

Like I said, it's an oasis.

As always, click on the pictures to see a larger version. Have a good Sunday.
