The Chimney Rock in Montezuma County, Colorado

Chimney Rock with Clouds 1395

There are at least two geological formations in southwest Colorado called Chimney Rock. Here’s the one near the intersection of US 491 and US 160 in Montezuma County as it looked on the morning of September 27th. I wondered if this might be the core of an ancient volcano, the rest of which has disappeared after aeons of erosion, but the strata of rock in the “chimney” make me question that. If anyone knows, please let us us know too.

As promised, I’ve returned to pictures from the American Southwest. After some more of those I’ll come back to central Texas in the autumn, then keep alternating for a while.
