The story behind the image

Earlier today I shared a closer view of The Newspaper Rock in Utah. This photo shows the entire site as of September 2003. Yes, it’s tiny, compared to other sites, but still impressive. Also, it’s just a very short walk from the parking lot to the site, so it’s a perfect stopover on your trip to the Canyonlands National Park.

According to the signpost, the rock is called Tse’ Hone’ in the language of the Navajo which translates to a rock that tells a story. So, its modern name Newspaper Rock is a very good match in my mind.
