Cactus in a hole

Clever cactus. Found a nice warm microclimate in a hole. Got a couple weeks head start on spring. Things might get a little tough later in the summer. Tradeoffs - it's all about tradeoffs.

Rain

It rained hard overnight. There is water in the crick. A couple feet of it. There won't be any exploratory hikes for a day or two. Ah well, I'm outa here - gotta go pick up my mail in Blanding.

Vision, Novelty and Fear

Animals see more intense contrasts of light and dark because their night vision is so much better than ours. Good night vision involves excellent vision for contrasts and relatively poor color vision.
