A Trip not taken #28

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a study in "the power of one". It is possible that a seed feel in this crack...and that the tree grew in the crack to what we see here....but looking at the rock, and at the tree...it seems more to me that this tree started growing on the rock, maybe in a small fissure...and as it grew, and grew down, it split this granite boulder. This is in a state park well inland, in the Rangely area near the mountains.

The Tyrant is giving his "acceptance" speech tonight at the RNC. Though we pretty much know where he is going....I probably will watch to see how dark and mendacious he goes.. I think back to that photo I showed a few weeks back...every word he says is a lie, including "a" and "the".

My life and I, and my daughter, son in law and grandson are leaving tomorrow afternoon for a long weekend in Pennsylvania Dutch country, staying in Bird in Hand (near Paradise, Blue Ball, and Intercourse). Will do some bike riding..my recumbent, Will's e-bike and towing Liam in a kid trailer. Great biking country, rolling hills, more buggy's than cars, and the Amish big wheel scooters--they do not ride bikes. I'll be back on EPZ on Monday.
