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.

Strange Rock Formations From Another World


Okay, time to fess up.  
Sinbad and I traveled to another planet in the Little House of the Solar System.


A nice shelter for the lost traveler.
That's not a snake in there; it's a branch.

Looks like one of those walls built by the Inca.

A ready-made fireplace?

Hard to believe Nature did this and not a construction crew.
No forklift could carry this boulder.

  1. All great nature finds. The branch has a remarkable similarity indeed to a snake. Its you telling it otherwise it would leave the cave empty I guess.

  6. Jon,
    These rock formations are amazing.
    You are correct - no forklift can lift that boulder. Makes me admire all those monumental structures erected before the industrial age.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Peace :)

  7. Excellent shots of these rock formations. Very very interesting. I do think I would be wary of what might want to find shelter in that cove at night.

  10. The slow processes of weathering and erosion really do make some remarkable scenes.

    Nice post - and the twig snake is very convincing!
