Woke up early for some reason this morning. Awake at 8 o'clock and out of bed by 8:30. They're calling for wind later on, but now it is just another perfect day. In fact, the breeze is keeping it cooler so I can lounge in the Sun😀
While drinking coffee and eating crackers, Yuma saw three Ravens lazily drifting low in the sky and off he went. It was funny to watch because the Ravens toyed with him. They would hover over him and then swoop down just to aggravate him. Finally they got bored and drifted elsewhere.
Dolly texted and said they were having bacon and eggs at their place, so I decided that's what we would have.
Around noon, Yuma and I headed out looking for that elusive crested saguaro, but it remained hidden away. This may be it..😁This was Larry's first trip to the southwest so maybe he thought this was one..
At 4:30 Yuma wanted one more run in the Jeep so I decided we would head a few miles over to Locomotive Rock and climb around. Unfortunately, it is late in the day and I was on the shady side of the rock which doesn't make for the best pictures.Drove down a dirt road in hopes of getting close, but this road didn't do that, so went looking for another. Finally found the right road that led much closer.
One last picture of Black Mountain, I promise. Parked the Jeep and headed towards the base of the rocks.
The wind is still blowing like crazy but the temperatures are comfortable. Clouds are building up in the West and time for us to find our way out of here and back home for the night.
Thanks for stopping by.
I think Larry must have been confused about his cactus. He was probably happy thinking he saw a crested saguaro. Great photos of Locomotive Rock. It's quite an impressive formation. Yuma is no match for those Ravens! I guess you'll be having a busy day tomorrow. Take care.ReplyDelete
I'm sure you're right Dolly. Those Ravens had fun letting Yuma chase them. And yes it was a busy day today.Delete
Doug, that's a great shot of the rocks, looks like a sights on a rifle! That's the shot heard around the world! Later, Rawn StoneReplyDelete
Thanks Rawn. I didn't see it as a sight but it does now that you mention it.Delete
What a view. Sure makes you feel like you are alone in the world! LOL. I'm surprised Yuma doesn't get more stuff in his paws. He must have tough feet!! Hot dogs are one of my go-to's, but don't tell anyone!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nancy. Yuma tries to step lightly and looks for them, but he still gets stuck occasionally.Delete
Would Yuma wear hiking boots? Save his paws, but doesn't seem to get stuck often.ReplyDelete
Nice picture of the rocks framing the sun. The DSW will miss you
Thanks Jeff. I've thought about buying him boots but just haven't done it. I try to stay away from the sticky stuff and he doesn't have a big problem with it.Delete
Great pictures. Hiking boots for Yuma.....is there such a thing? Yesterday we had the same weather. Beautiful morning....then very windy. We were headed to Walmart but the wind was whipping the car around so we made a turn and came home. Hopefully today will be better.ReplyDelete
The wind did sneak up on us and did get really strong at the end of the day. Yes, there are paw booties 😁Delete
The rocks are beautiful! Yuma must have tough feet, I can't imagine walking out there like that! Sure is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shirley. I would be stopped cold if I lost my shoes. Yuma seems to do well and doesn't get stuck too often.Delete
The rocks sure made the trip worth while. And the way you got the sun through them is perfect! Too bad about the stickies in Yuma's paws, it's bound to happen. :( Booties are a good idea if he'd wear them.ReplyDelete
I love hot dogs as a back up too!
