<i>Romancing the Stone</i>
Big granite boulders + time to explore =
a good time had by all. These boulders have
surrendered to the forces of gravity,
creating tectonic caves where water collects
for wildlife. Arizona's elk are in their
calfing season now, raising their young amongst
this setting of boulders in central Arizona.

And if you look close enough in the shadows, you might see a rattlesnake. I didn't look close enough!

I'd be leary of the nice dark recesses of these boulder induced caves. It is nice to have a boulder or two you can call your own.

I was glancing at the forum topics here
on SP, and everybody seems to be spotting
snakes of some kind. Some of us are
snake-deficient; meaning we don't see
many snakes. It was like that in western
WA. After I moved to AZ, I saw tons of
snakes; so I guess you get what you wish
for in the very end. Thanks, Dean.
