Losee Canyon Up Close

Losee Canyon is located in the

It is a rough life for a tree at this high altitude.  
It is very dry, the wind is always blowing and lets not forget about winter.

Other plant life is quite small.



Fire too is a factor for the trees.

That's far enough, time for this boy to turn back.

Back in the parking lot - notice the license plate.
What an adventure they must be having.

Beans goes to school.

This is a Darkling Beetle but most people just refer to them as stink bugs.
When annoyed they will stick their rear end up high and give off an unpleasant odor.
Beans encountered her first one. 

That one was all it took.  From then on she observed them from a distance.
Fast learner.

  3. It looks a difficult place for trees and plants to survive. Beans seems to be very interested in the subject of insect science at her school.:)

  7. John, you have covered a lot of territory since you left here. Some places look very interesting, others not. I wouldn't stay in Tonopah either. Utah is a very interesting state with lots of diversity. Your narrative is interesting and I enjoy the pictures. Good to hear that Beans is adapting quickly. Good travels ! Norm
