It was our last hike into one of my most favorite areas of Calico Basin..
We left our friends driveway and headed west..
See that smallish home in the center?
I would love to own it..what a fabulous view.
I wonder what bird left this downy feather behind…
The hike starts to get steep…
I turn around to catch my breath and take this photo of the area we came from.
Jeff hiking up on the left..
It’s a great opportunity to look around and take photos..
Do you see a Gorilla?
I need to hike way up there..
But..I find this tiny purple flower.
I look up behind me and see something up in the rock…
Now that I look at it I can see its not a Junco. Not sure what it is..possibly a Rock Wren.
We hiked there four years ago…didn’t fit that hike in this time around.
This is what I LOVE about this area.
Check out the video I took of helicopter..seemed a little scary doing the maneuvers in this rocky area.
We aren't the only ones watching..check out the group below..
Time to continue on…
We work our way down to the wash..
Fabulous sculptured rock..
A sandstone hole..
I look up at the rock in the sun and see someone climbing..
I am going to walk on and let the rocks speak for themselves..
I hope you enjoy this area as much as I do....
Goodbye Candycane and Polka dot hike…
Until we meet again…
