Another week is almost behind us. We are starting to get those huge Autumn spiders in our yard. They are about one inch in size at their largest and very scary looking as they seat in the middle of their large spider webs. Its that season again. Probably for about 2-3 weeks and then they will disappear for about eleven months. I’ll try to take a photo of one of them if I get a chance.
Today’s photo is probably an easy one for the most of you. First, very similar composition was posted here sometime last year, so any old timers will recognize it, or otherwise many will probably just know where it is. The colors speak for itself.
This is one of the first photos I took that day. Early in the morning we were driving from Flagstaff to Sedona and saw this park. There is a tiny parking space along the road with access to a hiking trail along the road. There are some spots where you can see the park from the high side, you might have to do a little climbing to get off the trail to get to actual views like this one. The cool part is that it is free, the bad part is that you can’t get down there to the river from here. To get down to the river level you have to get into the park and it costs a few bucks. We did it later in the afternoon on our way back to Flagstaff, you already have seen one of the photos I took at the river level.
We were there in the middle of the winter and as you can see it was a bit cold. What I’m wondering if the name of the park stays true to its name in the summer time. Does anyone know if you can get in the water and slide on any of the rocks? There are a lot of places down there that seems like would allow this, do they actually allow to get in the water to do it, not sure. You can see one of the photos from the river level here.
