EARLY MORNING HIKE ————–

In the cool of the morning when there is a moist fragrance of the earth and the sun is slowly defining the cliff formations, we prepare for a long hike to the top. We see how the ancient shallow seas leveled off the sands as if with a ruler and then laid down its own deposits over millions of years. The warmth of the sun on our faces feels good in contrast with the cool moisture of the shadows. I look at my hiking partner before we begin the first steps of the climb, she smiles with enthusiasm. We make one last check, water bottles and food, binoculars, cameras, hats, knives and a short rope. As I step onto the first sandstone ledge, she slaps my butt and we are on our way.
