Mountain art

Tavildara Valley is a place of loops and swirls.  One mountain has elaborate, multi-colored curves covering its top third.  Another appears to be bending in the wind.  Below left, fractured slabs of rock rise hundreds of meters in the air from the surface of the Inghob River, bending gracefully as they rise.  On my first trip, my attention was drawn to one of these peaks where snow had lodged in ever expanding circular patterns, giving it the appearance of a giant rose.  Now, in warmer weather, the extent of the geologic artistry is clearer.  The combination of glaciers grinding away and wind and water on the rock  has created a gallery of mountain art.
