Peeking out of a small slot canyon as the sun begins its daily decline. Soft clouds, juniper and rocks above as another day comes to a close.
It felt like walking into an old western movie. High noon, a parched landscape, junipers, tumbleweed and a herd of wild burro roaming a landscape of bluffs, buttes and canyons.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and happy wandering.
Reflecting on a summer that seemed to come and go and somehow felt like it did not exist. There were photos taken that prove it real but even these feel like a dream.
Walks were walked and thoroughly enjoyed yet a nagging voice walked the trail with us. Silent at times and other times loud. A whisper at time and other a shout…..What’s lost may never be found.
Yes, much can be lost in a very short time and now nowhere to run.
The day started Mostly Sunny and ended mostly cloudy and throughout of day it was mostly beautiful.
While spending time ogling the wildflower patches in front of us we almost forgot to turn around and breathe in the pure cloudless sky and wonderful mountain ridge behind us.
An evening storm passes by bringing thunder but no rain on the mountain peak just across the way.
A classic summer cumulus just seemed to hang over this rock formation from early afternoon until evening.
The setting sun still shining out the mountains ever so close but still far away.
Summer days seem so few.
Summer speeding up as water flows from snow above.
Thunderstorms loom and the sun shines bright as July is ushered in.
Just for fun another basket of spring wildflower rendered in monochrome.
Even with a precarious grip we can keep hanging on.
We all need just a wee bit of time to empty the bucket before it overflows and makes a mess on the floor.
A bit of time to let your brain drain of that endless stream of information you have taken. Information we cannot process or act on to slip away.
Just a few minutes to shut off the flow and open the drain.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
A lone cottonwood stands tall in a valley larger than life. I bet this guy has seen it all.
