For a cold, snowy, December day

San Rafael River cutting through the Swell

Just to remember those hot days of summer and early fall in the desert.  The Sinbad Formation of the Thaynes Group slopes down to river level on the left, bleached rocks of the Moenkopi Group up to the maroon Chinle Formation on the slopes of Assembly Hall Peak, with a cap of Wingate Sandstone, and Kayenta and Navajo above that on the cliffs beyond.  The leaves of the Fremont Cottonwoods just starting to foretell the cold and snow of today.
