R relaxed in the sun at the base of K's Rock, in a spot where K herself basked.
Then, we'd enjoy a quick breakfast before the boys would go for a trail run and we girls would go for a mountain bike ride. Later, we'd all relax in camp, during the all-too-short daylight hours. The long dark hours are one drawback of "winter" camping - but it does allow for lots of star photos.
One of my favorite parts of the sunny days was sunset or the "magic hour" when the sunlight is so warm and glowing.
Yes, I still miss K, and I always will. But, this girl, Shyla, has won my heart.
K's Rock itself also becomes a glorious honey and red color as the last rays of sunshine touch it. I wonder how long this rock has stood tall and how many sunsets it has seen. The desert landscape makes me think about the history of the Earth because its layers are exposed for me to see.
