Bighorn sheep sighting - this is Nevada's state animal so I am very excited to see one for myself. Wait - is this poor animal jaundiced or merely mirroring the nearby mule ears. I think closer inspection is required.
And upon closer inspection, I can see that it is one of the Artown sheep, come to live in the wild. As you can see for yourselves, he has horns, coming and going. Reno artists were challenged to decorate sheep for the annual arts month a couple of years ago. I don't remember this one, but that's because he escaped to the wild.
Yesterday was one of those days when even I was impressed by the big sky. I must have taken a half dozen pictures on the drive to work. I need a bumper sticker to the effect, Caution - I brake for the sky. Someone at work asked me what I do with all my pictures. I said, upload them to Flckr? I don't know the answer. That little smidgen of yellow out there is the clustering of mule ear.
That long mountain in the back-
ground is Dogskin Mountain and it is the only 7.5" USGS quad-
rangle in this state that isn't printed as a single map. It's printed on the same paper as a 1:100 map and that mountain is my back yard. Huh? I don't know what that means either.
Rit dye remover for my indigo dye bath in a couple of weeks is why I went to the store on my way to work. I was waiting for the signal to turn and just had to grab my camera. The sign advertises a Starbucks drive through and a WalGreens drug store drive though, and the sign is flanked by Kentucky Fried Chicken, US Bank and Jack in the Box, all with drive through windows. Don't we ever get out of our cars?!
Are YOU ready?
