Go Climb a Mountain

One day I headed off for the mountain across the road from camp.
This looks like lichen but it is the "skin" of the rock that has fractured away leaving the true color exposed.  It will take a long time for it to turn gray from weathering.

 Some cactus find the strangest places to call home.  Between a rock and a hard spot? 

 This looks more like easy living. 

Nearing the top and you wonder how he got here.

Well, that's far enough.
Can you see the Little House on the Highway down there?
Click on the picture and you can see it better.

It looks indeed nicer when you make the photo's greater. Especially the last one. What a view.

I looked at your last photo at full screen and it is a stunning landscape, so empty. It looks almost you were on the moon all alone and your spaceship was waiting for you.

Here in Cayman we have this black limestone shore line, we call it "Ironshore" when a piece breaks, it is snow white underneath!

You were really on your own out there!

What a great campsite.

Nice looking mountain range.

It always amazes me how tiny plants, many of them less hardy-looking than cacti, manage to survive and flourish in the most unpromising situations.

It took me awhile to find your home...but I did find it!
