What we did not see was a pinon pine in the back of the van. Michelle fell in love with the pinon pine’s shape and lustily made plans to bring one to her back yard. Her son, Brandon, rigorously opposed her plans. When pointing out the questionable legality of removing plants from a national reserve did not deter his determined mother, he cited the practical problem. “We do not have a shovel,” he observed.
Ever helpful, I told them I did, in fact, have a shovel in the back of the van.
Ever observant, Joe commented, “See Brandon, you are traveling with prepared women."
Ever witty, Brandon responded, “Yea, I am traveling with women prepared to commit a misdemeanor….”
I am happy to report that no misdemeanors (nor felonies) were committed. We did not even break anything. What we did do was have an amazing day among some incredible rock formations. And, as mentioned, we saw some interesting creatures. Can you see what we saw?
