Sunday Hike

*Firstly, let me apologize for the lack-luster writing ahead. I apparently have yet another bout of the flu, and am having trouble making cohesive sandwiches while at work*

 

Sunday found us 2 hours away from home, slowly driving bumping our way down a back road to the North side of Sycamore Basin, following Rich and Sadira.

We arrived at Trail 63, and began the hike into what we were hoping would be a water-filled valley. Sadly this was not the case. An hour into the hike and we hadn't spotted a single drop of the wet stuff.

 

We did, however, spot lots of cacti in bloom, like this little guy:

 

So, a bit turned off by the heat, wind, and lack of watery goodness, we turned around to head home. Along the way home we stopped at the a dis-used and abused house along the way. I totally copied Rich and took some shots to later convert to HDR.

The house:

 

A water tank outside:

 

And the green water inside the tank:

 

I even managed to get a right fine picture of DaNece:

 

From the house it was back home to cook mom a mother's day dinner of Chicken Apple Quesadillas!

 

All in all it was a very pretty hike, but not one that I will be repeating anytime soon. Hopefully the next hike will be either the lava river caves, or wet beaver creek.

Oh no...I' sorry you don't feel well. I hardly spent time near you enough to breathe on you...and I'm still sticking by my original diagnosis of food poisoning. darn it.

You got some great shots Tom, and I had a wonderful time on Sunday! The picture of DaNece is very prudy indeed!!
