Dec. 14 – It Was a Dark and Stormy Night….

No, really, it was a dark and stormy night! Yesterday morning, luckily after our campfire had died down, the wind came up and the innocent looking gray fluffy clouds scudded across the sky and stacked up until they were dark and ominous. After a sunset hidden behind ragged, wind whipped clouds we heard the pitter patter of raindrops on the camper that were soon joined by many multitudes of drumming drops that lulled us into an uneasy sleep. We woke to a fresh washed, bright, fragrant morning and soon headed out to explore.

Ephemeral pools dotted depressions along the road and washes.


Like any 4 year old, Mavrik ran into every pool he encountered until the novelty wore off.

    I don’t who writes the commentary to the beautiful pictures, but it’s really good! Great description to the dark and stormy night, I felt I was right there too. Hope to see you on your next swing through Chicago.
