A Roadrunner, not Running Away
Sometimes you just have to throw it out to the universe, and hope it comes back. Such is the case with me wanting to find a roadrunner, not running away.
I have wanted photos of a roadrunner since we started wintering in Arizona. But every single time I would see one, they were running away, fast. So I was thrilled the other day when we were camped near Lake Mead and this guy showed up, then actually hung out for a while.
We spent Tuesday, and Wednesday night at the Las Vegas bay campground. We seem to always land in this little campground on our way north, or south. We avoid Vegas like the plague, so we travel the back road that goes past Lake Mead and this campground is perfect.
Anyway, I looked out the window and there was the roadrunner. I snuck out the door of the RV, camera in hand. He wasn’t spooked in the least, and let me watch him, and photograph him.
I had no idea that they have such cool markings. The blue, and orange behind their eyes is so awesome.
Walk like a……roadrunner.
Scratch that itch.
There weren’t as many flowers as in Arizona, but these sunflowers were sure pretty.
We headed out on Thursday and stopped at a little red rock spot off the road. We always drive by this, but I’m glad we stopped this time. If you follow on Instagram you saw the video I took of Al in this spot playing his flute.
We pulled into a spot north of St. George where we have stayed a ton. It’s private property and the site of a mountain man rendezvous we go to. Friday morning we want hiking and wandering. We always seem to do our best “business” planning when we are walking, which is exactly what we were doing. We were discussing some new ideas, what to do, what’s next, all that. I looked in the sky, and saw this question mark.
Of course we were amazed at the how, and why this was even in the sky. Then we thought…what does it mean? What is the universe telling us?
Why ask why???
