Desert Speaks

Touched By The Face Of The Earth

Season 8, Episode 3 of 13

Touched by the Face of the Earth Examine geological landforms in the desert and learn how people are intensely affected by them. This episode offers a look at people connecting with the landscape. A pilot/photographer flies an ultra light aircraft low and slow through Monument Valley. Another photographer walks through the surreal landscape of slot canyons. A man builds a house into the rocks of Sedona as a healing process, and becomes part of nature in the process. And a rock-climber tenuously touches and hugs the side of a mountain as a way of closing in on nature.
