When you realize just how much #petrifiedwood you have, and figure you should probably start selling it or doing something with it all. Pretty sure I have like 8 different types just on this table. #rockhound #rockhounding #rockcollecting #rockcollection #wood #jasper #forsale #gemsandminerals #minerals #collection #NewMexico #505 via Instagram http://ift.tt/2qFUPGW

When it's so #hot outside your #hiking buddy has RDF ("resting disgustipated face") and the sun has burned your eyebrows off. Hiding in the shade for a much needed break. #unlikelyhikers #hikenm via Instagram http://ift.tt/2r7DNmF

"It's not where you're going, it's whose with you along the way" - My big doggo, Bender Oak, hasn't been hiking with me lately...In his older age he's just too freaked out with all the coyotes he smells in the foothills (such a cautious, grumpy old man he's turned into)...So today I drove us to the suburbs and we played Pokemon Go for our #weekend #walkies. This is him annoyed with me putting a camera in his face. Again. #doggosdoingthings #blackandtan #liveloverescue via Instagram http://ift.tt/2r6n1HC

"Hidden Monuments" - #secretplaces never stay #secrets for long. Recently found out a locals #hangout, "The Dirt" was sold off & due to several bad apples, access is now restricted. The area is full of weird #hoodoos (pictured) that put part of #bistibadlands to shame, as well as old ruins, petroglyphs, amazing #hiking and so much more. Met the new security team this #weekend, learned the private owner is struggling with all the vandalism, trash dumping and people trying to get mineral rights to his land. Really feel for the owner. This was my last day out here. #RespectTheLand people, #leavenotrace. #canonfanphoto with the #Canoneos SL1 & EF 10-22mm. #monochrome #sepia via Instagram http://ift.tt/2pUH9MH
