Daily Prompt: Rolling Stone – a boulder home

If you could live a nomadic life, would you? Where would you go? How would you decide? What would life be like without a “home base”?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

When I saw the title of this challenge I immediately thought of the very strange boulder homes at Marble Canyon. During the Great Depression, a few white settlers built a small town of wooden structures with shingle roofs that still cling to gigantic boulders in a moonlike setting at the foot of Vermilion Cliffs. It makes one think about the sheer desperation of people to make their homes in this inhospitable place.

This photo is a view of the balancing rocks through the window of one such home.
