I drive by this stunning formation on every single trip between my two national parks. The light was just right this time; my car could not NOT pull over. Kind of like with the sunflowers. I agree with Miss Dickinson:
“Life is a spell so exquisite that everything conspires to break it.”
Heading into remote backcountry again tonight, for three nights, this time to the Book Cliffs where I’ve never been. We’ll be evaluating and mapping riparian (river/stream corridor) habitats for their suitability for the endangered Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Along the way I suspect we’ll see everything from lively petroglyphs to large predators. I will be off blog until Friday but hope to have some excellent new content for you upon my return.
