ROOT ROUTE (or the case of the missing Pearl)

Approaching Angels Landing

Observant readers will note the absence of "Full Moon Desert Pearl." All two of you. Fact is, I just wasn't happy with that image. So, I get to cheat a little and re-do the post. I'm afraid the comment may now seem non sequitur-ish(?). But dems da brakes out in here on the far-flung edges of the digital ort cloud. Perhaps of note, but perhaps not, is the dendroidal aspect of the image...harking back to themes in earlier posts. What can I say? I'm a tree-hugger.

OK . . . "UT9" is, like, state route 9, correct?

It would have been awesome if your exterior shooting had also captured the guest of one of those rooms sporting and exposing their OWN personal full moon in this picture. Sigh. Guess story book endings like that only happen in the fairy tales, huh?

No, no . . . I STILL think it would have been awesome had someone's personal moon been exposed hanging from this bizarre tree!

That aside, I can only applaud (loudly) whenever Yawndave choses to examine the root. That holds true regardless of whether we are referring to a young Yawndave, or an older, wiser Yawndave.

Now, the real question is, I see A tree. And I see one heck of a rock. But did this Yawndave come walking through the treeS?

Still looking for that storybook ending, I guess.

Oops, sorry about that. I had hoped to insert a witty repartee in between the previous comments. That didn't work. Then, since you can't go back and edit published comments, I had to delete the next thing I posted. Maybe I'll get this one right?

Re: "...an older, wiser Yawndave." Older in years certainly, but you're only as old as you act. Wiser in some ways, but still seeking enlightenment in others. The journey continues.

Curious readers should know by now that straightforward answers are hard to come by here. However,there are exceptions to every rule, trendbuckers around every corner. With that in mind:

The "Root Route" photo was taken along the Angels Landing Trail, which takes the adventurous hiker along a narrow sandstone ridge with a 333m drop off on either side. The hiker heading up towards certain doom is none other than renown gourd artist, Elaine Linton.
