Sunrise in September

Sunrise from the porch, coffee in hand. The rooster loves to come around us and he also likes to wake the sun up, loudly! He is a beautiful little fella and we like having him around. He used to be in with the 19 hens but we had too many roosters. So know he is just part of the family. I had a couple of hummers come to the feeder while I was enjoying the view but I couldn't get a good photo. They are fast little dudes.
We didn't have quite as good a show of wild flowers this year as we have in the past but we are enjoying all we got. It is supposed to get down to 36 tonight so they will soon disappear!

Pictures of Vision Quest

The Picture of me in yellow was taken about 3 weeks before the quest but that is where I lived for 48 hours.

The rest are of me taking off from base camp to climb up to the place in SW NM.

I have only ever back-packed one other time so I was glad I didn't have too far to go but it was mostly vertical!

The Alligator Juniper tree and I had a wonderful time together. I learned much from her. Roly is in the first picture with me but he didn't get to go on the quest in case he scared off any animals that wanted to visit. As it was I was mostly visited by birds and insects. I thought I would see elk and deer but it wasn't to happen.

It was a beautiful place and I had a wonderful time. Again, I would recommend this adventure to anyone needing some quiet time to think and reflect on life.

Vision Quest

I went on a vision quest in August for 2 full days and nights. It was a wonderful experience for me and I would recommend it to anyone needing answers, insight or just a great natural experience.
