A day at the beach... sort of...

Saturday started out on a beautiful - if warm - note. A few clouds dotted the horizon, but they didn't appear too threatening. After running a few errands, I thought I would talk a little jaunt in my trusty vehicle. I headed through Elgin towards the base of the Book Cliffs. I followed the increasingly rough road toward what locals call "The Beach" but which is more formally called Gray Canyon. I thought I'd take my camera with me and see what I could capture through my lens on this impromptu outing.
This critter and friends crossed right in front of my car as they left the river bank after having quenched their thirst. 

After pausing for the sheep crossing.... (no there wasn't a I continued on further to see what else I could capture. Here a few photos of the ruggedly beautiful area I call home.

  1. I don't know why I love the desert so much...people look at it and say that it isn't very beautiful; however, I love it.

    Glad you enjoyed your little outing.
