Another trip to the desert

We had another great trip to the desert

Saturday and Sunday we went walking in the desert in some pretty cool places. On Saturday we went to a place called Black mountain where there is a bunch of petroglyphs.  We walked all around and saw some great rock formations, and of course petroglyphs.

 We had so much fun running all around, especially Torrey. Mom climbed up a sandy hill while dad stayed down below, and Torrey ran up and down that hill several times. We went with our friends, who live here, the same friends we go to rendezvous with. This is Auntie Shannon and Auntie Myra.

 Then on Sunday, we went to a place were there are dinosaur foot prints still on the ground. How awesome is that!

Can you see those, they are as big as me. It’s so amazing to think that footprints could have been made in the mud a bazillion years ago, and still be there. We were walking on rock, were the footprints are. After we looked at the footprints, we walked down a dry stream bed and mom and dad looked for rocks….of course. There are more awesome pictures on Desert Raven Art today. Including some pictures of this awesome mica mine we went to.
Today is the Monday Mischief blog hop, come hop along.

  1. Wow! Very cool place and great photos! Especially love those petroglyphs!

  2. looks to good to be true. I’m glad your in a warm place. Its been so cold here even Sugar and Lucy goats water trough froze up and Mike had to pour hot water in a bucket and try to unfreeze it enough to take an ax to it. Someone dumped off a huge Tom cat that tried to kill the chickens but just got feathers. I wish people wouldn’t dump off animals. The dog next door ran off a few days and came back expecting.. there’s another problem. When Reggie and Ollie come in the house their feet aren’t even wet because its frozen solid outside. They are minding so well with the obiendence training.

  3. What a fun adventure!! I love the colors in those pictures, the blue of the sky and the color of the sand – amazing!!

    Hope you’re having a fun day :)

  4. That looks like fun, but I would be worried about snakes. Are there snakes there? Do you carry a snake bite kit?

  5. Roxy mom is fascinated by what you got to see on your walk…Dinosaur footprints! OMD! and those petroglyphs…do you have a guess at how old they are? Also mom sez this is the first time she’s seen that gorgeous beaded collar you have on and wants you to tell your mom how much she likes it

    • Thanks for the compliment on my collar, mom loves making them and there are a few stylish dogs out there.
      The petroglyphs are around 2000 years old, some older. And the dinosaur footprints blew us away too. Think how old they are!!

  6. We love the desert too… we camp there for a total of about a month of each year, in the spring and in the fall.

  7. It’s so cool that you got to see dinosaur footprints! And it looks like you’re enjoying the weather a bit more where you are now. =)

  8. So jealous that you are in the southwest right now. I could go for some sunshine and a hike to check out rocks. I always love the contrast of red rocks in pictures. It makes Torry and Roxy stand out.

  9. What gorgeous scenery, what a wonderflul place for hiking! And I love the beaded collar, so fitting for the desert Southwest!
