Now Back To The Original Conversation
Before Levi went down and my emotional fall out we were talking about our vacation and hiking on these amazing rocks and canyons.
These look like a stack of pancakes to me. With broccoli on top. I hear in some countries that that is a delicacy. I prefer syrup and whip cream.
This is what hiking in 112 degrees looks like.
A balloon always makes 112 degrees better and more tolerable. Who in their right mind hikes in 112 degree weather????
I'd like my stack of pancakes with a Mr. C on top please? Or maybe they are chocolate scoops of icecream! Mmmm, we could have used some icecream about then.
What amazed me was how some of the mountains were this smooth almost lava looking flowy rock and then the mountain right next to it would be all rough and jagged.
Like this! Anyone see a rainbow? If I were a better photographer you would have no problem seeing the rainbow in the rock with all of the different colors in the arch but I'm not so use your imagination. While you're at it, you can imagine leprechauns dancing under the arch and unicorns hiding in the broccoli. I mean, scrub oak.
Amazing what wind and rain can do to rock.
When it is 112 degrees out and you come across some water falling from the rocks up above, you dunk your head in it. Then you realize you're wearing a white blouse so you dunk only the back of yourself because one must be modest so that later in the day you can undo every ounce of modesty you've tried to maintain by falling into a river completely soaking yourself.
If this should happen to you, stay in the water submerged up to your neck and while laughing, tell everyone to stay away. Call your oldest son over and make his strip off his t-shirt. Then, try to take off your blouse as you continue to try to stay submerged under water only to get caught in another current which continues to sweep you downstream while you're topless sending you right into the path of other hikers who are cooling off in the same river.
Not that this happened to me, I'm just saying......... if you ever get caught in this sort of a situation.... is all I'm saying....... just trying to be helpful here.
How do they grow up so fast? Someone please make the wringing of my heart stop! My womb feels shriveled.........
Oh blessed cooling water! Apparently earlier in the year this is a roaring waterfall. When we saw it, it was just a tinkle.
I love the bond these two have............ Mr. J has his own bed. Every morning I find that Mr. J has crawled into Mr. M's bed. Yesterday when I went to wake them up I found them a tangled mess. Couldn't tell arms from legs from whose was whose. Their lives meshed and running/tumbling together much like the rocks and sands in this photo.
