Looking For Treasure

Sunrise so bright
Fog drifting off
It's a new day
To explore the land.

 Well, I might try some

Trying to stay clear
Of this little spider here
It seems like a lot of work
To make the billowing web.

 This thunderbird was carved by Woodland Indians

 Hey, there are frogs back in that pool ! Lets go back!

This made me think of Native American stories of creation where they climbed up tree roots from inside the Earth to be part of the land.


  1. I have always found those American Indian stories fascinating. Great photos, loved the ones of Lily enjoying her walk.

  2. You've got a little bit of everything in this post. That ice cream cone looks cool and refreshing. Lily must be a dainty eater. With most dogs, it would be gone in one gulp.

  3. Hahaaaa...Love Lily and the ice cream shot! You should do a full series of shots Just about Miss Lily! Love her!
    And the Thunderbird carving!!! TOO Cool!

  4. You sure found a few treasures here.. as did I. I love the way you framed that first shot so that you see the sun reflected in the water but not in the sky. It looks magical. The thunderbird is very nifty and of course Lily is always a treasure.

  5. Steve, sure looks like you and Lily are having a great getaway.

  6. A gorgeous treasure trove. Loooove the thunderbird - so simple but so powerful...you incorporate that combo of beauty and power into your photos - thank you for this lovely stop in blogland.

  7. You are a very good treasure hunter, Steve.
    I could see a wild turkey, a day, in Wasatch mountains.

  8. A new day with sun light is always a great one, and you have found many interesting things to show. The spider web though, is quite amazing.

  9. Beautiful photos! Miss Betsy

  10. Are those wild horses? I saw herd of wild horses running like the wind over the hills in Northeastern Oklahoma. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life.

  11. The creation stories are always interesting. The trails and ditches here are also ablaze with yellow....

  12. Love that thunderbird. I've always liked seeing tree roots, too. They always looked like good places for a fort.

  13. well if you were looking for treasures you sure found them. Glad to see that Lily got to have some ice cream too

  14. Lovely thoughts that's quite the carving


Keep it positive and informative,I enjoy hearing from you!
