Ruddy Turnstone

Ruddy Turnstone – A close look at this Ruddy Turnstone will reveal it has a small bug in its beak.  We were driving into Goose Island State Park when I spotted two Rudy Turnstones picking around in the wrack along the beach. I was only able to get good shots of this one.

Sandstone Mound With Tree

Sandstone Mound With Tree – In Kodachrome Basin State Park we found many examples of  sandstone features which have been softened by the constant attack of wind and water.  The result is a rounding of what remains of the feature.  Nature’s work on display.

Weathered Tree Trunk – This weathered tree trunk gives one some insight into the harsh conditions that exist in this area.  The tree, seen in another image does quite well even though the trunk seems so barren.
