Montezuma Castle National Monument, near Camp Verde, Arizona ... One of my very favorite places in Arizona which is filled with many places that I love dearly. This spot has the power to take me to that time and place when the people wandered and lived here. I can feel them ... I feel as I have been one of them. The peace that fills me is like no other.

Anasazi Ruins Mesa Verde National Park Colorado: I stood here in the icy winter cold, and felt things that I had never felt before. There were no other human beings within 50 miles. I never though I'd like the desert, but I felt something there, not just in the ruins, that I'd never felt before. Maybe the Eastern part of the United States had that feeling of oneness with the Universe before it was turned into a parking lot. Photo credit: Stephen Oachs
