last weekend we took a walk. we needed some fresh air & sunshine.
along the rim of the rio de pueblo canyon.
the yellow chamisa is shining brightly right now. and it looks lovely against the gray green brown rock.
and we were rather thrilled when we realised we were being watched by bighorn sheep. a scattered herd of them. they would jump around the rocks, munch a little, and then watch us awhile.
it was a nice, long walk. down into the canyon and up to the rio pueblo.
at the bottom of the trail we sat at the water, and listened to the trees.
and on our walk up, we filled our pockets with rocks full of shiny mica or tiny, clear crystals.
he likes that he gets to show me these things. and I like it too.
