Coyote Buttes (C3)

Coyote Buttes (C3)

This was the very first image I ever took with the 8x10 camera. This area has been greatly over used by tourists and photographers since a German published its location in the mid 90's. I remember going here numerous times before it was "discovered" and still remember it in its "pristine" condition which no longer exists. The sandstone fins which used to stick out from this location are all but destroyed from careless people walking on them. I wish I would have saved the letter from BLM once they learned we found this location. It stated there would be NO images published of this site. We respected their wish and kept it a secret until the German published a book with directions of how to get here. There are other formations in this general area that are also getting discovered and being published by people in the hopes of making a buck.......................Sad.
