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.

Day 97

This is an owl pellet.  
The owl will regurgitate the undigestible parts of the rodent it swallowed whole.  

I found this water hole in the middle of the desert.

It was part natural and part enhanced by man.  There was some mining activity nearby so that is probably the ones who did the little bit of cement work.

Now it is a valuable water source for the animals in the area, including this butterfly.
Unfortunately in the summer it will be a dried up and that is when the animals need it the most.

The end of the trail for somebody.  
Maybe they needed that water hole.
