Tree Taking ‘Foothold’ In a Crack

photography-SwittersB-tree-crack rock-The rock was about five feet high. A crack at the top of the rock had afforded a rooting place for this stout  tree that so perfectly blended, in color and texture, with the color/texture of the large rock. The sustaining moisture, for life, would only come from very intermittent rainfall. Yet the tree seemed to thrive putting forth a dense canopy of leaves. Below, the Banded Rock Lizard was equally camo’d with the color of the rock. Until the lizard moved, I didn’t even see it a few feet away. I imagine much of that was my lack of familiarity with my surroundings.

Black & White in the Desert

photography-old snag-black and white-desert-mojave-SwittersBHiking about looking for bright cactus and wildflower blooms. The telltale bright pinks, reds, blues, yellow and orange spread out over large expanses in this one spot in the Mojave Desert. Suddenly, the stark contrast of a white rock slab and a larger dead snag next to the spikey Yucca cactus attracted notice. It blocked our path, so we had to stop and pay our respects to what was.

Deschutes R. (Danger, Peligroso, Cuidado, Shit, Lucky!)

 The ‘Oh Shit Rock’ at Whitehorse Rapids on the Deschutes River claims drift boat, guide and client’s gear and mental health. Resting Outward Bound group records event. Sometimes no matter how good you are mistakes happen. I hear certain know it all’s over at the Westfly Forum are bashing the guy. Lighten up!  There but for the grace of the Fish God(s) (pick your divinity…don’t want to offend) go all of us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-IMozM_bno   

Remember even the best make mistakes eventually.

And, of course, the dumbest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tngEivwrB4M
