Photographer's Note

This photo is of the north side of Papago Park's "Hole-in-the Rock" butte. Though not the hole of the name, the hole in the ceiling of the rock-shelter is believed by archaeologists to have been used by the Hohokam Indians to create a solar calendar. Their markings of the solstices and equinoxes are still visible.

Just minutes from downtown on the east side of Phoenix, Papago Park offers a wide array of recreational facilities. Comprised primarily of sandstone, the range is known for the buttes that rise and fall throughout the park.

ISO 200, 1/800 at f/7.1, 16mm focal length
