Maia, Alegre and Houdini

What other critters has this amazing and ancient juniper tree sheltered in its shade over decades – or centuries??

Maia, Alegre and Houdini certainly appreciate its shade.





No exertion here

Storm; Temple Butte and Brumley Point

Storm was napping in the cooler-than-usual summer sunshine, with his band grazing around him. I found a place to sit and watch (taking advantage of the spectacular background!), and every now and then, he’d come alert and look over, assure himself that all was well, then return to his nap.

Not too much bothers the big boy. 🙂





Summer solstice

Hayden; McKenna Peak

Sometimes, it’s impossible to convey the *feeling* behind the beauty of our world. Sure, photos can help me *try* to share that beauty, but a photo is only a square, limited view.

Wherever THERE is for you, get out there in the beauty, and if you can, share it with others.

Think about the variety of life on this planet. Nowhere else in the known universe has what Earth has. We are so blessed to enjoy the beauty of this big, blue ball.

And happy summer solstice. 🙂 Summer is here.

Maiku

Maiku was standing guard for his band (he’s a lieutenant stallion), watching another nearby band. As long as they keep their distance, the little guy can be drowsy in the June sunshine. 🙂





Blooms ‘n blues

Kwana with blooming prickly pear cacti.

Kwana’s baby blues aren’t on display in this image, but the cacti are blooming, and the grass is growing!
