    After the first hard freeze Monday night, hard to imagine hiking in tee shirt and shorts today. But another off-trail adventure beckoned, with warm sunshine and a cloudless sky.

    It is always somewhat treacherous to abandon the relative safety of the trail for steeper inclines, dicey footing, lots of sharp-thorned cacti, and scrambling on all fours back up to the top of the mesa. But the rewards of being amongst the amazing rock cliffs and formations, close to the earth, and the stillness and solitude, make the effort well worthwhile.

    It seems that you had a nice day. I especially like the second and 9th image with their compositions. #2 might also look good in B&W.
