House on fire
House On Fire is located in the South Fork of Mule Canyon, about 25 miles west of the little town Blanding, UT. This location is named House On Fire because under the right conditions it appears there is a roaring fire coming out of the roof of a small grouping of Anasazi houses (ruins). This phenomenon happens only during mid mornings on a clear day as the sun is reflected from the adjacent ridge onto the roof of the alcove containing these ancient cliff dwellings.
It is amazing to experience this distinctive optical illusion—and this location provides a great opportunity to capture a unique and intriguing image found only in the great American Southwest.
