Today Glen and I hiked. It started out easy enough on the Rinconada Trail. Then we opted to take the Little Arsenic Trail which went down to the Rio Grande River. Going down was the easy part. Going back up to the rim….I now know that if I end up in hell, my eternity will be spent hiking up switch backs lugging a ruck sack. We did manage to get some very nice pictures.
We spotted a solitary Indian Paint Brush, so naturally I had to take it’s picture.
Rio Grande Gorge…
Obligatory selfie….I still look like a happy camper so we hadn’t started the horrible ascent.
The only wildlife we saw besides a bunch of circling buzzards was this guy.
We have no idea what typed of plant this is, but we thought it very interesting looking.
