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
