One afternoon my friend Jan and I got into her Jeep and started out from our boondocking spot at the Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area in Colorado. We drove down an increasingly rocky and rutted road, until the going was too rough even for the Jeep...
...and then we got out and walked. At first we followed the road, which turned into a path, which turned into a gully. Then we hiked cross-country, until we came to this little gem of a lake.
As we kept walking, I saw these colorful lichens and mosses growing on a large boulder...
And later on, I found this small cluster of oak leaves growing out of the bleached wreckage of a large tree.
Go ahead—take a closer look!
On the way home, we stopped and photographed these red rock cliffs as the setting sun painted them.
Then we came home and had western omelets and fried potatoes for supper.
And that was our day. A good photographing day, and a good RVing day.
