Just like Jim T (Pa) in VA, hiking is normally an everyday activity out here, or at least an always available choice. Yesterday, I was out in "Devil's Canyon" again and ventured down along one of its streams (snap #1). What made yesterday special was the visit from my daughter (who lives in CA) along with her 3 month-old puppy, the latter of whom was enjoying the start of acquiring her waterdog chops, but soon she became pretty tired (as puppies often do). Maybe the altitude change!

Beautiful photos, Eric. I miss the high desert landscape!
