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.

Lost and Found

Another day, another walkabout.


I wonder who lives here?

Well hello there.

Just another fascinating shape in the rock.

 Huh!  See what I see?  Right in the middle of the sand.

Well, I'll be darned.  Someone has been through here before, but there were no footprints around.
(The footprints you see above are mine.  I only thought of the potential blog post after I picked it up so I reset the scene for the picture)

It couldn't have been too long for the batteries were still good...kind of.

As I always told my kids, You'll never find your fortune by looking up in the sky.

  1. Fascinating shots John. I like them and also that you never find your fortune by looking in the sky.

  2. That last sentence is new for me! I have never found some fortunes on the ground but in the sky neither :) The spider is fascinating coming closer to you for a photo.

  3. Great comment, and really true. You might find money, but for sure keep from tripping over something. Love these photos, and how fun to catch the spider.

  4. Hi, John.
    Loved your series from the Alabama Hills. I've never been there, but it sure looks like a great place to visit and explore. I really appreciate all the shots of it.

    Really sorry to hear about Sinbad's failing health. I know that is tough to go through, because I went through it with a particularly loved dog a few years back. Hoping for the best for both of you.
