Ravens met along the way

. . . and some other images from the road.

Close encounters with unafraid raven pairs, at the Grand Canyon, and again at Petrified Forest. The ones at Petrified Forst were probably looking for food handouts, but the ones at the Grand Canyon were just huddling down in the wind and snow, and didn't seem interested in anything human. Nonetheless, it was a connection, a close encounter, a numinous moment.

Hazards of the road, on Highway One, the California coastal highway. Don't look down, and don't think about being on that bridge during a quake, and grip that wheel tightly.

Highway One—and this is one of the easier stretches of road

the reward for daring the drive is views like this:

I took a photo of that same bird at The Grand Canyon on my blog. It has to be the same.

Hey, that's my raven, not yours. Hands off.
