things I have never before experienced
September 09, 2009
One reaches a certain age where one starts to believe that one has seen (either in person or in a nature documentary) just about every rock formation that can exist. One would be wrong.
This weekend, we made a side trip to Boulder Field in Hickory Run Park.
(Diva provided for scale)
Imagine a lakebed filled with rocks. That will get you close.
A wee tree, just barely big enough to provide shade for the Boy.
I'm still astounded that hikers are encouraged to walk out on the rocks, simply because they are a broken ankle just waiting to happen. The National Parks' Services' nonchalance about overly litigious visitors surprises me just as much as 13 acres of rocks does. Which makes me a little sad.
There was also time by a small lake, which looked like just about every small mountain lake you've seen. Fun, mind, but I'll spare you the pictures.
Except for this one:
There are a dozen shots of Cory's shadow (taken by Cory) on my memory card. It's his new thing.
There was a famous photogapher who made living making images that included his shadow. Needless to say I can't remember his name. But, could find it if you are curious.
