the unexpected.

Those pictures up there have nothing to do with anything whatsoever, except that they happen to have been taken while we were out exploring over the weekend. I get a thrill of delight the moment I see something small and special in an unexpected place. You know, the kinds of things that you have to either really be looking for or feel just plain lucky to have run across because you happened to be there at the right moment.  That’s what I felt when we spotted that cactus cross someone carved in an out-of-the-way place, off the beaten path of a scenic overlook.
