a world to ourselves

three and a half days of summer.





 not fancy.  





nor exciting.

not even anything extraordinary or life-changing.





just chipmunks and squirrels and skunks and lizards and seagulls and owls...

and sticks and books





and sand and water and waves and solitude...



and quiet and respite and slow.




and that will do.

roadtrip : and then the *really* ancient west


 hadrosaur footprint

 fossilized bones





ski season is over, and adventure season begins.
all is well, here. 

roadtrip : the ancient west....

 
 from the Fremont tribe.. 500 AD








roadtrip : the old west....

 Grafton, Utah 
eventually abandoned from too many indian attacks
 














 same birthday as me!

 many graves of families bore the same death dates, or within a day of each other
