  4. That upward climb leads me right straight to the sky!


    RED SKY IN MORNING

    Red sky in morning,
    Sailors take warning!


    Who knows what might happen out on the sea?
    Waves riding high,
    Waves to the sky,
    Waves crashing and dashing all over me!

    Red sky at night,
    Sailors delight!


    Leeward or windward we sail with no fear;
    Water is calm,
    Healing like balm—
    Ahoy, fellow sailors, landfall is near!

  10. I like the barren look of this place. Makes me wonder if there are a valley on the other side. :)

  13. What a beautiful spot. I love rocks. They are so interesting to me. I like to see them in all different places but especially enjoy rocky mountainous areas.

  15. Beautiful shot...I just need to see the view from the top!

    It has been a long time since I have enjoyed the adventure walking in such an environment, that's the downside to living in London than back home in the North of Scotland...

  18. Here's another one for you, appropriate for the shadows in that steep, hilly climb:


    SHADOWY DINNER

    A shadow, a shadow, a shadow you say?
    A shadow is coming to dinner today?

    Oh, what shall we feed it, and what will it eat?
    Just toss down a few rays of light at its feet,

    And watch its dark mouth gobble up every ray,
    But be sure, my friend, you don’t get in its way;

    Keep out of the light so it won’t gobble you.
    (If I were the hostess, that’s just what I’d do.)

    A shadow is easy to feed, so they say,
    So welcome your shadow to dinner today.

  20. this rocks look intimidating to a trying-hard hiker like me.:p but i love this photo.

  21. The view of the rocks in the sun is stark, almost unforgiving. Yet the color is almost of gold in that same sun. A feeling of warmth that is tempered by the shade of the trees. What a beautiful place!
