Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Moved

Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Look closer

01 Agave bloom in Transept canyon NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x793) 

I know folks come to Grand Canyon to see the big ditch, but don’t forget to look at the little stuff along the way please.

Or is this just a way to show off more photos I couldn’t seem to fit into a post?

Either way, I hope you’ll keep your eyes open for the Big…

The little things are often the most interesting.

I'll remember this when I'm "elbowing my way up to the South Rim" next week ;-)

Great reminder where ever you happen to be hiking or visiting. :)

Phillip said...

Loved the photos of the small things, the colours, textures, and shapes.

Nina Fitzgerald said...

The whole is indeed so much more than the sum of its individual parts. Keep an eye on the "little stuff."

Barb said...

Loved your big, small, and unusual photos, Gaelyn. Good observations and good reminder to keep our eyes open.

Like I said in my PEDP post yesterday, I always have one eye out for nice landscapes while the other one is scanning the ground for the little things.

Words to the wise.

It's been a while since I've been to the Ditch, especially the north side. I've never been able to get my head around it so I end up looking at the "other stuff."

Arija said...

Yes, never forget the little things . . .

JoJo said...

Your photo's always amaze me. I hope to get back there again some day. Keep those pictures coming

Karen said...

Beautiful photos of the ordinary stuff here.

Kathiesbirds said...

You are so right! and I get so focused on birds sometimes I forget to see the other stuff too!

dAwN said...

Cool photos..I love bark!

Bluegreen Kirk said...

No posts needed the pictures are beautiful! Sometimes the small and unusual are what make the big place so interesting.

The Giraffe Head Tree said...

One of my favorite posts by you. LOVE the trees and small things. Excellent.

Janie said...

You're so right. The little stuff can be just as interesting and memorable as the big dramatic scenery. Great photos to illustrate, too.

I like these a lot! I am very partial to the detail you see in closeups.
