Walnut Canyon National Monument

Pictures: We took a little trip to Walnut Canyon National Monument the other day and here are a couple or three shots.

Walnut Canyon itself is a beautiful place.

As you look around you start to see the Cliff Dwellings.

There are a few that you can walk by and see up close.

Chores: I went off to town today and did my chores, laundry, shopping and water for the RV.

Weather: It rain hard yesterday evening but I think we are going to get a little break from the rain now for a few days.

Wild Flowers 2

Pictures: Just couple more wild flowers.

The crops on these next two are so heavy that you can’t click and make them bigger.

Rainbow from yesterday evening, this is 10 shots stitched together and it has flaws! About 1/3 the way over from the right it bent my rainbow a bit, I had to try and clone in the upper right comer of the image and the left side is a bit darker than the right. I need to buy me a wide angle lens. At any rate it was a beautiful full double rainbow.

Exercise: I walked 3 miles today.
Update: After getting back from my walk this morning my friend (Barry) ask if I wanted to join him in a trip to Walnut Canyon National Park (Just east of Flagstaff, AZ), so we went, which added another 1.7 miles to my walking today. (Pictures later on)

Exercise: I walked 3 miles this morning. I dressed in sweatpants, sweatshirt and half can of OFF! That dress was surely a little warm for the walk this morning but it helped to keep the mosquitoes off.

Weather : The monsoons are still active and I can see and hear the thunder and lighting coming this way, so rain is likely.
We had a good rain, the mosquitoes are out!
