Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah
It is a tough life for plants and trees in Utah’s desert climate. They have to grab a foothold where they can, endure long dry periods, and withstand wide temperature variations. Winds are strong enough to sculpt the rocks too, forging shapes and textures. I found the tenuous support of the rock ledge (seen on the right of the photo frame) to be especially intriguing.
Please be thinking good thoughts for me tomorrow, when I have a hernia operation, and during the healing days ahead. I am preparing my photo challenge post in advance. But I don’t know if I will be up to visiting all of the participants promptly. Life, once again, takes priority over my blogging presence.
