Blue Basin Hike

We hiked the Blue Basin trail.
Right away we saw the Bullock's Oriole.

Sage scented the path.

Other worldly landscape with
fossils everywhere.

The trail was narrow in places.

I was a silent witness.

The rocks spoke to me.

I could feel the ancient life.

I am connected.

We sat in the natural amphitheater
and listened.

We left our echos

as our tribute

to this sacred site.

We took our time walking back to our car.

We watched a mother hunt bugs for her babies.
We could hear the little ones but never saw them.

This was one of the most special hikes we took.

The paleo-soils touched me deeply.
