Break From Rocks

Flora and fauna also make up the beauty of the Canyonlands area. Forgetting about the scenic value of rock panoramas, here are a few photos of the living specimens found in my hikes.

A desert garden of wild flowers:

Jim rests in the shade of an old juniper:

The animal life is mostly lizards:

How about a bee taking a pollen bath in a prickly pear blossom:

Natural bonsai trees abound. With a trunk diameter of a six inches, the tree is no taller than me.

The rare waterfall in the Canyonlands area was found near Ken's Lake.

Canyonlands' flora and fauna also deserve recognition. It isn't all about rocks.


  1. I also have a trunk diameter of six inches. If you measure my trunk at my ankle.
