Valentine's Weekend

I kinda hate to post this, but maybe it will give you all something to look forward to.

We spent the weekend in Palo Duro Canyon again, with temps up to short-sleeve levels - at least for part of each day. Beautiful weather and little wind blessed us most of the time.

Spent time hiking around with camera in hand, looking for any opportunity I could capture. Did some bike riding, and of course a little hanging around the campfire at night. Gotta have a campfire! I didn't expect it, but the burn ban was lifted for the weekend.

Valentine's day evening, Shelley treated me to some German cuisine, made fresh on the grill, and enjoyed together at the dinette.


I put a bird feeder out, but it never attracted any birds. Deer seemed to have the trump card.

I never suspected this. The feeder didn't fare too well with this going on.
As is typical in PDC, deer and wild turkeys visited us often enough, and the deer checked our empty hands occasionally for handouts.

Saturday night, while we were enjoying the campfire, the wind showed up. It came suddenly and strongly enough that we rolled the awning up and took the canopy down. The outside tables and chairs were also folded up and put aside. In the panhandle, you never know how strong it's going to get when it just shows up. Better safe than sorry. Fortunately, it died later in the night while we slept. It was nice and calm again by morning. I took this one not long before the winds came.


I was hoping to do some stargazing, but the sky wasn't cooperating very well. The southern sky was pretty clear, but the northern sky wasn't. I need to see Polaris in order to align my telescope for tracking, but it wasn't going to happen either night. Just enough to stop me. Oh, well.

It's not the right time of year for tarantulas or rattlesnakes, but I was able to get a shot of one predatory critter. A group of 5 or 6 deer went on high alert, and I sat and watched to see what they were concerned about.

This coyote stepped out of the brush long enough for me to get some shots.

It seems that there is always something different to see each time we go.

I see faces in these formations:



When I previewed this post, I realized that this is the same view Henry posted under my PDC campground review.


Once again, we had a great time! It makes our first (and worst) experience seem so long ago, it's just a memory. Thank God we haven't run into the "Moon People" again!

Wow!!! Very Nice! Thanks for sharing. Cyber warmth is better than none...

We have a snow storm moving in tonight and then come Thursday it is suppose to hit mid 50's and thunderstorms???? It was 2F on the way to work again this am.

What kind of camera do you have? The focus and depth of field is great.

I guess it's that time of year where the weather tries to figure out what it wants to do. <G> Hopefully you guys will get some good camping weather soon.

It's a Canon 60D. Upgraded from the T1i last year. I use it for normal photography and astrophotography. I love it!
