POTD: Of Forts and Canyons

From 2016 02 07 Ranthambore

Today's photo-of-the-day is of Fort Ranthambore in the heart of India's Ranthambore National Park. The fort is the reason the national park exists. The park was formed from the former hunting grounds of the Maharajah of Jaipur, who lived in the fort.

Yet my headline says, "Forts and Canyons." The canyon is Texas's own Palo Duro Canyon. Opposite side of the world. Palo Duro Canyon has its own story to tell, one featured in a previous POTD. Seeing Fort Ranthambore evoked a strong memory of seeing Palo Duro Canyon. Go ahead, click the link and check it out. Maybe you see it, too. It's a small world...inside my head.
