Graffitti Trees at Bryce National Park

These trees were near one of the overlooks at Bryce National Park. Tourists have carved names and initials into the trunks. Not very "earth friendly", but creating interesting textures to the trees. These probably won't be seen as historical as the rock paintings and pictographs of the Indians!

"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.”    Dale Carnegie (1888-1955)

Backyard Birds

American Goldfinches, mourning doves, acorn woodpeckers, and a hawk (a red-shouldered, I think).
All visitors to our yard and nearby open-spaces.

This links to The Little Red House and Mosaic Monday.
