Friday on the Bridal Veil

Taken while on Becca's early morning constitutional
We got a fairly early start on the Bridal Veil Falls Trail this morning, and even though there was one vehicle in the parking lot when we started off we saw nobody on the entire 90-minute trek; just the way we like it.  It was slightly cold when we began our hike, but the sun shone brightly and the chilly wind blew only sporadically, so we were comfortable with our apparel (though we never felt the need to remove any items of clothing).  Becca was disappointed at not seeing her buddies during her morning constitutional, but they showed up as soon as we got home after our trek.  Then Becca, Champ and Cowboy all had a good romp, the latter two getting plenty of attention from their two human neighbors--Dr. K and me.

We decided not to go that far today

Almost to the turn-around point

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (Desert Southwest style)

More Christmas trees

More leaves

What is it with me and leaves today?

Don't know what this is

Made me do a double-take (longest horse necks I've ever seen)

Had to stop on a narrow road to try to photograph what we saw

Yep--two camels at 7,000 feet

Let's play the "guess the breed from the butt" game

A happy trio

We saw a lot of critters this morning--birds, dogs, and (hard to believe) camels.
