Photography by Dewitt Jones | Text by Judith Morgan
Canyon Country is the story of a great landscape which dominates resident and visitor. Native Americans first called this country of canyons and mesas home. Early Spanish explorers and American pioneers were confounded by it immense scale. Settlers found the land challenging, and even today Canyon Country remains sparsely inhabited, a powerful force and inspiration for all who view it.
The names are familiar: Zion, Bryce, Arches, Dinosaur, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Monument Valley. From Colorado National Monument to the Grand Canyon, each location offers the visitor a different perspective of this varied and fascinating land.
Among the sandstone cliffs and slickrock canyons, the forested mountains and river rapids, Canyon Country holds a special lure for photographer Dewitt Jones. His photographs transmit this landscape with astounding sensitivity from the early morning light’s caress of Delicate Arch to the mighty roaring rapids of the Grand Canyon. Canyon Country is the work of a superb master landscape photographer.
