This out-of-this-world pic of Ah-shi-sle-pah Wilderness Study Area by Steve Ancik is the scenic winner in the @share_the_experience photo contest. The New Mexico landmark protects spectacular badlands of rolling water-carved clay hills that show colors rarely seen elsewhere. With little vegetation to conceal geological formations, it's easy to spot the area's rich fossils. Photo by Steve Ancik (www.sharetheexperience.org).
