Driving through Navaho land from Farmington to Crownpoint on highway 371 you can find the Bisti Wilderness on the eastside of the road. Usually there is only one other car parked at the entrance.
I have been to this place several times before, trying to fly a kite in almost windless conditions. To my big surprise it was windy these past days and I could walk my kite and camera deep into the “Wilderness”.
It is a landscape in debris: all kinds of colorfull stones and sediments mingle in time through water and wind erosion. It is a fantastic display of geological forces.
North East of Wichita is an abandoned Greyhound Racetrack. The parkinglot in front of the track is HUGE, the size of a medium Vinex location in the Netherlands. The racetrack closed 8 years ago and has been left to the elements ever since.
Cracks in the asphalt provide room for small plants and trees, slowly nature regains it’s place.
