Anti-Cline (Canyon Rims more)

Anti-Cline (Canyon Rims)

Though just there two weeks ago with Shelly and Andrea was time to go back and scout ways to go up and down for exploring during the winter. Some people call it the Anti-Cline (Me), others Hatch Point (Ivan the Terrible) which is the most prominent feature up there, some call it the Kane Creek Anti-Cline but I've always known that as being the next Anti-Cline over and some as in the dork that did this sign call it the Cane Creek Anti-Cline. However yesterday while at the secret place (Peaceful Place) I saw a book by Fran Barnes (which I have) that calls it Canyon Rims and that is a great name. There are miles and miles of rims. Depending on the weather this winter it will be my second home.

Amasa Back (Day Seventeen)

Today I explored the rim section from Jackson Ladder all the way south to the Stone Canyon which is part of the Scorched Earth Trail. The first part of the area has a bicycle trail going through it that goes by Whale Rock and fittingly is titled Captain Ahab.

Breakfast at Tiffanys (New Characters)

Two Pinyon Jay (blue) have showed up over the last couple weeks. They are so much larger than everyone else, almost a foot tall, everyone is nervous when they first arrive each morning.

The Nightly Ritual: (Two)

The hardest things has been to give them hot dogs on the stick, while lighting them up and not blind them, and hold the camera. By the third video I think I finally got the headlamp aimed correctly.

The Nightly Ritual: Cheater

I didn't think there was anybody, or anything, including the porch night creatures, who could like hot dogs as much as I do. I might be wrong.
