Out of all of the National Parks and Monuments in Utah Hovenweep is one that I had not visited. While I working on my BFA me and some of my friends went on a weekend photography road trip. We went over 1200 miles that weekend that took us through Utah and two other states (Arizona , Colorado, and almost Nevada). One of the best stops was at Hovenweep National Monument. They had super nice campsites and best of all between November through February camping was free. The scenery was spectacular and the ancient Native American ruins are amazing. I as able to create this image of Hovenweep Castle for my BFA show and it was also one of the three images selected that was published in the award winning book Uncommon Ground.
