Megalith at Dusk: Hopi, Second Mesa, AZ

Megalith Hopi Second Mesa, Arizona

On the Hopi reservation in northeastern Arizona, the rock formation in the center is known as Corn Rock. It stands as somewhat of a sacred presence at the base of Second Mesa. When one makes their way on the road up to the top of this mesa, where Hopi villages are still today, he’ll pass Corn Rock. At sunset, it’s great to take in the view of the blue buttes that appear on the horizon. I liken Corn Rock to the black monolith in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey because it stands there leaving an observer wondering what may have happened there a millennium ago.
