|Bell Rock as we started our hike|
When Easton and I set off on our day hike, my intention was to walk from the parking area to where the Bell Rock Trail meets the Bell Rock Pathway. Once there, we only need to climb a few hundred feet up Bell Rock to have a spectacular view to the west, take some pictures and do what we came to do; leave a few of Lady's ashes behind. Mission accomplished on this lovely day in Northern Arizona. About 68 degrees, high clouds and no wind.

|Ouch, Easton decided he needed to taste a Prickly Pear.|
Not a good idea, his tongue bled a little. Never even phased him.
|This back-country avalanche (OK - a "rock slide") sounded like a crack of thunder.|
The picture was taken about 30 seconds after I realized what happened.
