Tséyíkʼáán ~ Comb Ridge ~ Vertical
Location Origin Story
Comb Ridge is a jagged linear north to south-trending monocline that curves out across the center of the Colorado Plateau from Kayenta in northern Arizona to the foothills of the Abajo Mountains in southern Utah.
In First Nations Dine (Navajo) language this ridge is called ” Tséyíkʼáán” which translates to “Rock Extends in the Form of a Narrow Edge.”
These sheltered ravines provided ideal dwelling places for the ancient Anasazi, who built settlements in alcoves and on benches and decorated the canyon walls with pictographs and petroglyphs. Ancient Ancestral Puebloans once found refuge in the Comb’s alcoves. Their existence may be found today as ruins and rock art on the canvas of shallow cave walls.

About This Photograph
This mysterious landscape scene was photographed in the early morning during the month of April while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Four Corners region near Monument Valley, Utah.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.
Positioning the bush plane to film this image was difficult due to intense winds that were blowing during the flight.
It is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
This image is offered as a numbered and signed, limited edition of one thousand (1,000) prints.
There are one hundred (100) artist proofs available.
