Are You a Chicken?

I was taking a jeep tour on the Broken Arrow trail in Sedona, AZ when we stopped at a rock known to the locals and ‘chicken point.’ The story I was told is that anyone who didn’t race around this giant rock on top of a cliff was a ‘chicken.’ I had to capture the beauty of this rock as I overlooked the surrounding rocks and setting sun.
