Sun & Fun



Day 5





Day 6

Do you see the second critter?


Day 7

Pink stuff.


Day 8


Day 9



Day 10



Day 11


Stay tuned for more from my Flovember rental. It sure beats Minnesota: ice slicked roads, melting pumpkins, decaying leaves, naked trees, nippy air and grumpy faces. Minnesota isn't so nice in November. 

Sun and sand is better - way better!

Flovember


Day 1

I'm four days into Flo-vember - my life at Lover's Key, Florida. Already, the horrors of October are receding like low tide. (If you've been paying attention, you'll know I'm a recent cancer survivor) 

I'll be posting one photo for each day of November, just like last year. So stay tuned and follow my tracks!

Pet Cemetery: Real or Unreal


Our Pet Cemetery is a place of peace and whispering pines. There's plenty of crunchy leaves, muddy tracks, dappled light, rocky ridge-lines, lichen and spicy smells. You might hear a grouse beating invisible drums. Or a distant snort. 

Obviously, you'll find dead critters, bleached bones and loose fur marking random crime scenes. But, some things stand upright and roam around. Unseen.
















Spooky.


Deer. Always deer. But, is this critter real? Or unreal?






No butts about it. Fake. A decoy. Plastic. (it didn't even scare our cats)


Akua inside the guts. 

 Still, it's fun to check the trail cam for the real thing. 

Happy Halloween!

Zion: Part 1


It's hard to capture the scale of Zion National Park, Utah. (in a photograph) First of all, we were roaming the grounds long before the sun slipped above the monoliths. It was cloudy too. On top of that, my i-phone was stolen after the trip, and I lost all my cell-photos. (no cloud) So, I guess you'll need to see it for yourself someday. Until then, follow my lens...



















The rocks of Zion almost defy description: they resemble an other-worldly geology experiment, where an explosion spit skyscraper sized rocks into the heavens. Obviously, the rocks resettled in an irregular mass of color and texture. Good luck finding the matching pieces!

Stay tuned for more from Zion and Bryce!

Behind the clouds..


I weathered the storm. My abdominal surgery was a success! I've emerged from the ether, situated myself upright at the computer, typed a few sentences. Hooray! The worst is over. 

   Plus, there's a 95% chance that I'm cancer free! My future travel itinerary seems secure. Even so, I'm taking another week off. I'll be back making tracks by next Monday, hosting my marginally successful blog party, posting more photos of the southwest and looking forward to taking you with me to the beach! 

Virtually anyway.

Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure...


Poor Hana. Several years ago, she was queen of tents-ville, ensconced away from our other cat Akua, so she could recover from surgery. She survived with plenty of spit and vinegar.

Now, it's my turn to wear the clown-collar. No travels this week. I'm taking a week or two off for surgery and recovery. I'll use my down-time to catch up on blog visits. I promise. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully, I'll be back next week for another travel post and link party. 

Cancer free.

Signal Hill Petroglyphs


Desert garden.

The Signal Hill petroglyphs are accessible and intriguing. They were created 800 years ago by the Hohokam and can be found in Saguaro National Park. This hike was one of the highlights of our visit to Tucson. Follow our tracks... 





Signal Hill: a scrubby pile of rocks. 



But look!









I love this photo. 

I'll never forget our visit to Boquete Bees in Panama. Back then, the guide and bee-keeper pointed out ancient petroglyphs embedded here-and-there on the honey farm. She said the rock swirls were sacred energy markers. I don't know what the Hohokam intended when they created their spirals, but I like to imagine it is the site of an ancient vortex. 

I know it is the site of desolate beauty.
