Hike at Rocky Point

Last Sunday, the 15th of Feb we helped our friends Jerry and Judi celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary by going on a hike to a place that David dubbed Rocky Point...Judi and I are comfy sitting upon the namesake.
We all take a breather on a couple of downed logs. It was a beautiful winter's day.

This is the best rendition of a camel rock that I have ever has that casino beat out for sure!
You might want to zoom in but this is a pretty cool "lizard" rock too.
Believe it or not this is the same area. One side was full of gorgeous rock out-croppings and the other was oak groves with fallen leaves that reminded us of Arkansas.

come on spring

It snowed, the wind blew like crazy and it was very cold. It is February and it isn't near as fun as snow in December. The wood was out on the porch and the snow blew all over it. I thought it looked like how I feel about late winter...put upon. Now if we got a wonderful med-heavy snowfall without all the wind it would be romantic and heavenly...ah, then who could complain? Oh yeah, it was moisture and we have had a very mild but dry winter thus far so should I complain at all??? NO...but here I am...oh well. I do look forward to spring even though we don't really have much of one here in the mountain west. It seems to go from late winter in May to hot summer in June. But still we can dream of spring and so I do. It is really a nice day out today and soon I will get by butt out there and be thankful for the temps and the blue sky and the wonders of nature. That sounds better doesn't it? Yeah, I thought so.
