This was a strange stop on our road trip. We stopped to have a picnic in Capital Reef National Park in Utah.
Beth saw apple trees.
Rocks and Trees
Long before this was a park, people lived here and planted fruit trees.
Those apple trees looked pretty tiny, growing up beside that big pink rock.
As we got closer I could see the red apples hiding in the green branches.
There was a sign saying we could pick the fruits. It's free if you eat in the park. You leave some money in a box, if you take some with you.
I didn't eat any. I just sat on the top of an apple and looked around.
I pointed out the good ones to Beth.
There was just the right amount of sunshine... and the apple smelled good.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
A few years ago, I used him in an assignment for a photo club and I got hooked. This little guy is a great excuse to play. He fits in my camera bag, so he's always at the ready for a photo shoot. He's been to a lot of places and he's had a few close calls, with fire, rivers, champagne, wild animals... the scariest of all was when he was lost in New York and returned to me weeks later.
I started the blog for Little Bear in 2012, but he got tired of my blogging style, very quickly. He has been writing his own blog for years.
