View from Cape Royal
So I went out to Cape Royal, at the end of the road. What I find kind of interesting is that most of the visitor’s questions are about how I became a Ranger and where else I’ve worked instead of about the canyon.
On the .3 mile (.48 km) walk out to the view point you can see Angels Window and there’s a short trail onto the top of the window rock.
The air smells sweet from the flowering Cliff Rose.
Pinyon Pine cones
And the Pinyon Pines are heavily laden with cones. Of course it will be another two years before the nut matures. Guess I’ll have to come back to gather some of those delicious pine nuts if the critters don’t beat me to them.
Considering that it snowed on me yesterday, it was warm enough today to be in short sleeves most of the time.
