I hadn't intended to go to the Lion's Head this evening thinking that I would go up above Bicknell on the side of Boulder Mountain for sunset as the light over Bicknell Bottoms is nice. But Frikka created such a fuss in the truck that I thought she must need to get out so I turned off at the Teasdale Road and took the first dirt road. She didn't really need to get out, she was just excited about going for walk. As it turned out the dirt road led to the bottom of the Lion's Head formation and the light there as very nice too.


The Lion's Head.

As well as the red rock there were flowers, this is a penstemon.

Is this the Lion's Head? (Look down the right side of the rock).

The Claret Cup were still blooming here, their time has passed down in the desert.

Came across this natural oven in the rocks, this being Windy Wayne County it is of course a convection oven.

It's hard to believe those rocks are stuck out there on the end.

Found this strange little beast, about 12" tall.

Another head, if you look at the whole thing it's more like a dog's head than a Lion's Head.

Yet another head - some sort of ugly troll by the look of it.

We climbed up to the balanced rocks, they seemed a lot more substantial from this vantage point.

As the sun got lower and lower the rocks became ridiculously red.

The final rays of the sun created a lovely glow on the formation.
