Red Rock Canyon Adventures






Pi and I headed out for a hiking/ghost town adventure on Saturday to try and find petrified forests. Apparently the forests we were looking for are nothing more than petrified twigs, and so between than information and the 1964 map we were using, we don't feel so bad about not being able to find it. We did find, however, some pretty interesting other things. The coolest of these was an old abandonned mine camp that we walked to (not knowing it was there) after ditching the car with camera inside it at the "road" edge. Alas. In true form, my camera was also apparently not opening it's lens cap all the way for some of the day. GRRRRR!

I'd like to see red rocks if given the chance thank you.

Oh, and we sure could have used that sign you took a picture of on my farm growing up. There wasn't a sign within 10 miles of our farm that hadn't been used as target practice. I happen to think that one would have been especially fun to shoot at.

I find it amazing that THAT sign WASN'T shot at! It must be the only sign I've seen out in shooting land that hasn't been... oh the irony!
