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.

The Little Life

An ant colony which may have been abandoned for I never saw anyone coming or going.

This here I first thought was just another unusual rock formation 
but upon a closer look I discovered it was a living community. 

 The sign below which I have seen at other places describes this plant community.

And a black and white for the day.


  1. It is right to have a warning sign and I like the comic cartoon on it! Have never heard of such a "living" plant, interesting.

  2. I never knew that about the crust. I'm glad they warn people. Beautiful black and white.

  3. nice they posted signs to (hopefully) make people more careful. love the tree!!!

  4. I never knew of these plants before!

  5. I had no idea that these would grow in a colony! Interesting.

  6. Nice that there is a warning. I always enjoy your b/w photos.

  7. Love that b&w shot. Interesting info about the crust.
