Feeling Adventuresome

On Thanksgiving, after our picnic and a couple of geocaches, I asked Dennis to pull over at a spot I had spied earlier.  I don't think he knew what I was up to when I lead him down a very narrow path on a very steep slope towards the spot I sought.  We're getting close here.

It's a long way down!  I'll admit it, there were a couple of times I regretted wanting to get out to that viewpoint.  A couple of times, Dennis had to hold my hand and calm me down as I started a panic attack.  I couldn't watch my footing without seeing that loooong way down.

To the left is the path, the very narrow, slickery path.  Towards the middle, behind the trees is the rock I wanted to reach.

That rock, we made it!  We sat on the top and enjoyed the view.  I wish we had had a geocache with us because we would have planted it.  Would be a great spot for one. :)

Dropping on my head

Traffic Jam

Since moving out west we have been held up by cattle being moved and now sheep - in just about a month, lol.  Also, you know those "Lost Dog" signs?  Saw one for a cow.

They are jumping over a guardrail on the right.

I posted a short sheep video on facebook if you're interested.

Utah's Woodrat

Found at Rick's Spring in Logan Canyon, Utah.

I think my grandkids would have begged to take him home, lol.  PS - He's big.

Got my buck!

This other one was better, but he wouldn't cooperate - check out that rack, though.

Owyhee County, Idaho

Stopped at a creek to let the dogs stretch their legs and get a drink.

Although Owyhee county is the second largest county in the state of Idaho, the population is under 12,000 people.

Closetmaid Cubeicals

We bought a couple of the closetmaid cubeicals for my craft room and one of the back boards was missing.  Closetmaid was awesomely quick at getting a replacement out to us.  I found it funny how this tiny things came in such a big box, lol.

Walking on volcanos

Walking around Craters of the Moon feels really weird when you think about it. 

I couldn't resist getting some close-ups of the rocks.

So many color variations.

And things somehow grow there!

You can walk almost the entire rim of this caldera.
