I'm back

Had a great time. Spent a lot of time walking around, hiking, smoking good cigars, drinking good hooch, fishing for crawdads (and boiling them for dinner!), eating more good food, drinking more good hooch, and enjoying a pine forest at 7000 feet.

Yeah. I enjoyed it.

Big pictures to follow. Sorry if you're on dial-up.

A view from the Rim. The Rim is a plateau that pretty much goes straight down, and it provides one hell of a view of northern Arizona. Fresh air, cool breeze, and cool weather. It was perfect for hiking.

And just to prove that I can do a close-up.....

I've always had a small fondness for thistles, for some reason. Perhaps it's because my horses used to like munching on them as I rode past a bunch. Perhaps it was the thistle honey. Or perhaps it's because they're prickly and hard to eradicate, much like many of my family.

Meh. Who knows. Maybe I'm just weird.
