Cedar Bluffs

I am still sick.  As of yesterday, I've been sick for two weeks.  I am better, but have not been able to kick this junk.  Still have it in my head, my chest, my ears. 
But- it was sixty degrees today and dug and I decided to take Chelsea and do one of our favorite hikes, Cedar Bluffs, which is two to two and a half miles from our house.   The hike isn't very long, but it is rewarding.  You walk along Clear Creek on a rocky trail and then head up to the top of the bluffs.

We happened upon a tree that a beaver had taken down so I thought I would take a photo of it to share with you.  If you'll notice in the lower right-hand corner, Little Miss had to get in on the action. 

Look at that smile!

Looking up at the bluffs.
I happened upon this excellent crinoid stem.

Chelsea and dug were up ahead of me.

One of the trees that live on the bluffs- a cedar.

Moss growing on top of the limestone.

Because I've been sick for the past two weeks, I didn't have a lot of energy or stamina, but it was good to be out and hike the bluffs.

At least your dog was thrilled and you feel a tiny bit better. Get well so you can go visit that baby.

Well good for you but don't over do with the hiking. Take care of yourself.
What a wonderful place to hike. I love all the huge rock. You sound like you know rocks and what they are called. I know the big three types but not individual kinds. except for Gold. I know gold and gold bearing rock and old tertiary stream beds, etc. but it's all because of my lust for gold.
I love rocks.
Get well soon.
