landscape & the local life

I like this portrait of Evan, who works at the local gem shop. In the glass case to the left of him resides Buddy the rattlesnake, who has called the store his home the past 20 years, ever since falling out of a hay bale that was out front after a parade.

comb ridge

This place. was. UNREAL.
We found an off the beaten path that led us to this Monarch Cave Ruin cliff dwelling from thousands of years ago! We had the entire place to ourselves. It was pure magic.
 !
Thanks again to my amazing tour guides and even better friends!

bears ears

We hit the road earlier Sunday to get a good start on some hiking and more adventuring.
Bears Ears
Some coffee and grits
The incredible Valley of the Gods
House on Fire
And hiking a few more miles for good measure...
