One of my favorite parts of the day in the desert is sunset. I love the warm tones of the light in the world of reddish rocks. At one campsite, we climbed up onto a mesa at sunset.
The Duo raced to me from one side of the mesa with a towering canyon wall behind them.
It melted my heart to see how Shyla watched her brother. This was on our first evening at that site, and I didn't yet realize how tough it was for R to see when he was facing the setting sun like he was in these photos.
R crested the top of the mesa in full flight with Shyla still watching him.
The Runner and Hachi relaxed above us while we played in the sunset light. I cannot imagine a more beautiful sight.
