A Trip to the Mountains

Sometimes, quite irrationally, things become irksome. Like blogging, for instance. One loses focus, gets stuck in a rut, forgets a time or two and then feels so guilty about it that one forgets again, other things get busy. And so on. You know how it is!

So, yeah, I think we’ve kind of fallen into one of those times here in “Ribbons”-world. So sad – because we’re actually really excited about what we’re doing and what we want to share!

As we figure it all out and prepare for what I hope will be a grand re-entrance into the blogging realm, here is a gallery of our most recent excursion into our local mountains!

A venerable tree, upon which I will base a bonsai (when I get into bonsai-growing)

A wonderfully climbable rock face

Me! Also on the rock, right before the incident when the boulder that I was leaning from fell down on me. Adventure has its perils! The boulder mostly broke up, so rather than being squashed like in one of those cartoons I just have a few scrapes. It was still a very climbable rock face!

The falls for which the trail is named! (we live in a desert – we’ll take what we can get)

It’s a beautiful spring, satisfactorily cool and verdant!

There’s a little cave nearby

I always love looking out at the green through the black!

(as you can tell, no lasting damage from my mishap on the very climbable rock face!)

A very pleasant Labor Day hike! It’s always good to step away for a bit, when things get too irksome, and do a little relaxing.

What recreation have you attempted lately?
