I ended up staying another day in Grand Junction so we went out to shop in downtown in the morning then a great hike in the afternoon. Dominguez Canyon is really a lot of fun. Hot though. I would say that early morning or late afternoon might be the way to go but I still had a blast. We took an entrance that is kept a bit secret and crossed the river. We walked for about 2 hours one way but could have gone on for weeks.... There were some amazing rocks. Granite, basalt, quartz, sandstone, rhyolite and some mica. It was hard to resist taking pictures of every inches of the scenery around. We saw petroglyphs not far from a great big waterfall.Just on the main trail. Gorgeous little figures. Of course some people have added their own mark to those spiritual markings. It makes you wonder why? But from the beginning of times it seems that men have wanted to change, add and mark their passage to this Earth. We can't help it!
On the way back, just before crossing the bridge was a magnificent specimen!
A Big Horn Sheep. If the Horn wasn't a clue already that it was a male, its back end showed proof of it for sure. Since Nancy was the one to spot it I thanked her for taking me to the "Ball Game"... Bad crude joke I know... Sorry about that. Anyway it was just a special place that I would not mind seeing again. So this conclude my broadcasting from Grand Junction. It was a really fast fun week. The Dobson have a gentil way about them that is wonderful added to a good sense of humour. Nancy is a perfect hostess and a such a good friend.
