A few weeks ago, Captain Cavedweller and I decided to go for a drive.
We ended up at a park where there’s a really awesome waterfall and the day we were there, spring run-off made the water a muddy brown.
There were lots of walking trails going all around the falls for those who were adventurous.
As well as rock formations I found fascinating.
Like this one that looked like a castle as it perched next to the falls.
And the falls. Beautiful – even with the muddy water.
It seemed to go from turbulent to calm in just a few yards.
There was an abundance of sagebrush (minus ticks, since it was too chilly for them to be out yet.)
And one lonesome rock chuck that did his best to stay hidden from view.
As we wandered around, taking it all in, I came up with a handful of story ideas. This set of tracks made me think of Snidely Whiplash.
Overall, it was a fun trip and one I’m glad we made the time to take!
I often get so wrapped up in my work, I forget that sometimes I need to get out, get a new perspective, see something different to fill my head with fun, creative thoughts.
Take an adventure, even if it is just in your back yard the next time you have the opportunity. You won’t regret it!
