Seen Along the Grand View

Dr. K, Becca and I hit the Grand View Trail at 8:40 a.m. and we spent an hour and forty minutes hiking, exploring and taking photographs.  Well, I was taking photographs; Dr. K and Becca were being patient with me.  Nevertheless, we all had a good time trekking in excellent weather, and we ran into absolutely no other soul on the trail.  Don't mean to sound antisocial, but it's always a real treat to encounter nobody else in a gorgeous setting; it gives the sensation of being the only people on earth, and, currently, the way I'm feeling about earthlings that's a very good feeling to have.
This and the next three:  American Robin

Really nice photos of the American robin, Packrat. It looks so majestic.

Overnight Rain

Desert sea? Everything was quite wet when we got started this morning due to overnight rain.  But the only consequences we suffered were wet...
