Wednesday, May 25 (continued)
At the conclusion of Part 1, the crew and I are at the overlook, eating our lunch inside the Perfect Tow Vehicle on this hot afternoon.
“You had your walk around, a drink, and lunch. Before we leave, I want to look from the other side. I’ll only take a minute and be right back.”
Quickly, with camera in hand, I trot away from the PTV to the other side of the overlook. Steadying myself at the chain-link fence, I snap a few photos.
The crew settles in for a post-lunch snooze.
Inside the well-insulated PTV with air rushing through my open window, we’re comfortable. It’s a great feeling, rolling along by ourselves.
Unlike some people, I didn’t experience a spiritual moment standing at the overlook. Stillness is required for that to happen. For reasons I stated, I rushed.
To be honest, I don’t respond like other people do to visions of grandeur, especially those that involve looking down.
I’m not sure what causes me to feel the urge to withdraw. It’s not fear of falling. After all there are barriers, a fence to grip. I think it’s the immensity. Too much to take in.
Here I am in Canyonlands. I could drive to see the massive anticline, but I don’t. That would be too much for one excursion. I’ll save it for another visit. . . .
Oh, I have to stop for that!
I hit the brakes.
Laughing at myself, I rush to kneel at the roadside in order to take this photo.
I’m not normal. No question about it. Sheesh. I give more attention to plants along the road than I give to one of the most incredible natural wonders, one that draws visitors from all over the world!
Further along I stop again.
“Sorry to keep waking you up, Reggie. I have to take photos of the flowers. Go back to sleep, honey. We’re going home.”
Bridget hardly pays me any attention. She’s having a good nap. Bless her heart . . .
Colorado! We’re going to Colorado!
I wonder what lies ahead for us . . . .
