Return to Rabbit Valley

We came back to Rabbit Valley east of Grand Junction, Colorado where we were in mid-May.
Seems like we are the only ones here.  
Oh joy that summer vacations are over and school is back in session.
Not that there were that many people here the first time.

Interesting lichen patterns seen on a hike. 

Next I came across an all metal old oil can.  Some research revealed that round oil cans (before that they were square or rectangle) came onto the market in the 1940's.  When the mid to late 50's came around the top and bottom remained metal while the side was a cardboard material all in an effort to save metal in production.  During the 1980's is when plastic oil bottles replaced the round metal/paper  style and these plastic bottles will be around long after the end of mankind. 

It is warm here in Rabbit Valley, 90 degrees everyday so we don't do much during the day.

Last Saturday was our anniversary.
Beans and I have been together for 6 months.


  1. The archaeology of oil-cans: I learn something new every day!

  2. Sweet Beans, she couldn't have imagined she would travel around the country with you!

  3. Happy Anniversary! The best 6 months of the life of Ms Beans.

  4. Happy Anniversary, and many more.
