Adventures in Hiking

You may remember I told you all I had to find a new hiking/running spot and I have. The above photos are of my views as I hike, thought you might enjoy. I snuck in a photo of my hiking buddy, Zeus and also a photo of my reward for an hour and a half hike, hot chocolate with chili.
Today, I am beginning a huge art project and I won't say what it is yet, but I will show you as it goes. I am so excited I can't sleep for thinking about it. I will give a hint, it is porcelain sculpture and it involves words. And Mim you inspired it. Happy Saturday! XOXO
P.S. I took these photos with my new Canon point and shoot!

I love the! I'd be afraid of Emma going off the canyon cliff.

I'm happy you have a new art project that is fueling some passion. I love it when that happens!

And wooo-hooo for the new camera!
I see that "sucky Monday" led you to some wonderful outcomes ;)

I seem to remember hiking in your area as a young adult and there was no end to the beauty!

This makes me miss the desert, Annie! I love the way the air feels. Ah, well, the east has its moments, too. :) That hot chocolate looks AMAZING, and I can't wait to see what the new project is. Happy Sunday, my friend! xox Pam

Secret Agent-I mostly love the big sky here. I love trees, but when I get somewhere with too many, or too many buildings and I can't see the sky I feel like I can't breathe.
Suki-Yes to all and I do love my new camera. xoxo
Lo-I put Zeus on his lead whenever the trail gets too near the edge, he is old and can't see well, so I have to be careful with him, and yes, sucky days often lead to good stuff, funny how that happens :-). Can't wait show you all the new work! xoxo
Whitemist-Happy to see you, I have not been by to visit for a while, I will come soon.xoxo
Pam-There is beauty everywhere, but NM is special.Happy Sunday to you too!xoxo

The photos look great. I bet you are thrilled with your new camera. Hubby has a Canon and loves it. A new camera can be a new way of seeing the world.

Your new art project sounds like it has you on fire. Wonderful!
