My life has a superb cast but I can't figure out the plot.

Soda Hill Hike


BW's been on vacation this week, so between that and a sprained right shoulder that makes being at the computer painful after a short while, my blogging has suffered! (Let's not even talk about my emailing!) But I took some photos during a fun hike up nearby "Soda Hill" (named for all the beautiful rocks found there that look like rootbeer and grape soda!), and wanted to share a few. It was a perfect day, sunny and in the low 70's...

BW and the dogs at the start of our hike...


A Sego Lily...


This is called "Prairie Smoke" and is one of my favorites...


I think this is a member of the Biscuitroot family...


BW near the top of Soda Hill (our house is waaaay below, over his right shoulder!)...


BW and Willow take a break (notice the in-flight butterfly above BW??)...


Tessa having fun!...


Pretty pinecones against a beautiful June sky...


Josie soaks her tummy and tootsies at the end of our long hike! :-)

SOME CURRENT & RECENT READING...

  • THE HUMANE GARDENER ~ Nancy Lawson
  • THE WORLD WITHOUT US ~ Alan Weisman
There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
