My castle in the clouds

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.
