The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

All I've Got

I hope you are not growing tired with pictures of rocks because it is pretty much all I've got.

 Sorry but I just fell in love with the Alabama Hills site.

I am easily entertained by Nature.

There were grasshoppers around but they were really difficult to sneak up on.

Another view of our camp from further away.  Lonely and desolate looking you say?
I know, isn't it just lovely?



  1. I just asked myself why we make so much photo's. Are we losing the possibility to keep the picture in mind and need a constant reminder of what we saw. Still because it is so different then our world its great to look at.

  2. After ongoing hecticness at work, that camp site looks perfect!

  3. You can't show me too much rocks, I love to see them. I can see you kneeling on the ground to catch a photo of a grasshopper. You must be very patient to wait for one to pose for you.

  4. It's a blessing to be entertained by simple beauty, John. Something to be thankful about.

  5. I never get tired of your posts!

  6. i like peace and solitude, too. as long as safety accompanies them. :)

  7. That fist shot looks so prehistoric. I could make pictures from that, just like cloud pictures.

  8. A big hurrah for the black and white photo.

  9. These are great. I could never get tired of them. Love that last shot.

  10. Jon,
    You rock with the rocks.
    Bring it on.
    More rock photos plz.

    Peace :)

  11. Cool, this area is on my list to visit... looks like my kind of place! Great job with the b&w shot.
