Morning Hike

Bought a new pair of hiking boots yesterday and went for a hike to start breaking them in. I parked at the Indian Painted Rocks at the Little Spokane River. I brought the Nikon along just in case a photo opportunity presented itself.

Wouldn't it be funny if this was some early form of tagging?

Wildlife abounds and I take pictures of trees.

A dragon? A warthog? Every time I stopped to take a photo the mosquitoes reminded me that I forgot the Deet. Two of the bloodsuckers got me so I guess I got off lucky.

But I love the texture and contrast.

Okay, here's some wildlife. I walked for about an hour and a half. The boots felt good but my right heel started feeling tender. No blisters. Next time I'll try the Body Glide. Next time I'll wear the Deet. Next time I'll wear a hat. Oh what an outdoorsman I am!
