Temporary Textures on Rocks

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

This will be an ongoing series that will appear over the next few months.  A few here, a few there kind of thing.

This one just happened to already be toned up and ready to go, though I don’t remember doing that, so it’s the one that’s getting used today as the introduction.

“Temporary Textures on Rocks” is my current working title, but it may change, and I’ll certainly take suggestions, but right now, it feels pretty decent in conveying some of the other meaning I’m going for, or feeling, or whatever.

It seems “rightish”…for today.


Nevada State Trail Marker

There are a lot of trails for hiking in Nevada.  Many of them, I’m guessing, not “official”.  “Official” meaning designated by the BLM or the Park Service or whichever agency owns that land.  (86% of the land in Nevada is owned by the Federal Government.)

This leaves a lot of open land, that no one really deals with, and people like me and the lady like to hike.  In such places, there are homemade trail markers.

Usually a tower of rocks. It’s highly unnatural looking, catches the eye, and is built from material all readily available.

And is very handy for not getting lost in areas which are pretty easy to get lost in.  Thank you nice people.
