An Otherworldly Campsite

Our next campsite was next to incredible rock mesas with deep lush canyons between them.
Next to the cliffs, the world is a jumble of humungous boulders. Some were so big that we used them for shade during the day.
And we played on them around sunset when the sun's warmth was a welcome feeling. It was wonderful to see how comfortable Shyla has become with our camping routine and settling into each new campsite. None of this was easy for her at the start of her time with us. It's still not easy for her to meet new people but she's generally very confident when she's with our pack.
This campsite was in an incredible area where I love riding my bike. I'll show you more of the rock sculptures that Shyla and I visited during our mountain bike rides in the coming days.
Happy Saturday!
