An even dozen enjoyed a beautiful-sky day walking the big loop around Penitente Canyon. We heard and saw four or five big funnel clouds of sandhill cranes gaining altitude and heading North. A bald eagle soared near them, apparently wondering why all the hubbub.
On the way up the trail
A relic Ponderosa pine earned appreciative comments
Nice lunch tables
Marilyn helped us see faces in the rocks
This hardy tree keeps trying to make something out of a rock, year after year.
Next week, 10 a.m. at Visitor Center. Snow or no snow, we'll go somewhere beautiful. --Doug Knudson
