This will be an almost wordless Wednesday... because I need a few words to tell you what the photos show. They focus on a sunset hike that we took above Black Dragon Canyon on a huge expanse of slickrock.
|This mountain of sandstone stood next to an endless field of slickrock.|
|The slickrock as I looked back down toward our campsite.|
|The sun began to set, and the Duo couldn't look toward it for a photo.|
|I released the Duo and K started trotting toward the west.|
|K forged ahead and I captured her as she stopped directly in front of the setting sun. She looks like an angel.|
|After sunset, we looked down into Black Dragon Canyon. You can see the sharp edges cut by the occasional raging torrents of water.|
Almost simultaneous with our slickrock hike in Utah, back at home, a mountain lion walked past one of my trail cameras. He is wearing a radio collar as part of a study of mountain lion biology in my area.
|He sniffed the base of a tree.|
|Then, he departed, with his long lithe tail trailing behind him.|
