Last week I said there would be pictures, so here they are. I went to Rancho Mirage for a work related event but still managed to enjoy the sites, especially the mountains.
Saw this little guy and was fortunate enough to get a picture:
Went horseback riding in Indian Canyon – the white horse was mine for the ride:
Rocky waterfalls are some of my favorite scenes to take pictures of:
Last there was this guy – for some reason I only saw him at night, and he was a bit skittish (unlike the ducks who ate out of our palms), so not the closest picture of him – but he was too funny/cute looking to pass up:
I think that’s enough, even though I took about 100 photos of various things. Pictures, as much as I love them, really don’t do any justice to experiencing the real situation. Still, for me anyway, they remind me of the feelings, smells, sights, and sounds that I then use to reflect in my writing. Even if I only have a picture for reference, I find them essential to recreate personal situations which I then use as descriptions in writing scenery. Maybe I’ll touch more on this on a later blog post – my keyboard is lagging and its starting to get annoying…
