BAR HARBOR — Photographer Bob Thayer will give a travel talk and visual presentation of his trip to the Colorado Plateau at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Nov. 7, at 7 p.m.

The Colorado Plateau is a geologic province roughly centered on the Four Corners region of the southwestern United States where Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah meet. From Arches National Park to Monument Valley, its unique and diverse landscape is some of the most spectacular in the country.

Preserved in National Parks and Monuments and in Native American Tribal Parks, its landforms are a photographer’s paradise. Domes, hoodoos, fins, reefs, goblins, river narrows, natural bridges and slot canyons are only some of the features typical of the Plateau.

Thayer’s program looks at how nature sculpted this land and how artists and photographers have been drawn to this area over the years.

If you’ve never been to the American Southwest, the beauty of the landscape may inspire your next vacation; and if you have, it will no doubt rekindle fond memories.
