It’s hard to feel let down on the first day of spring, but here we are. It’s all the fault of Rich-Illinois – if he didn’t make such a big thing about seeing your shadow on the equinox, I wouldn’t have minded that it was overcast today in Moab for probably the first time in a week. The sun did poke through for a few minutes and cast some feeble shadows, but they were too indistinct to merit attention. The best I could come up with was some faint shadows from the leaves of a yucca. Major disappointment.
Still, we did our best to salvage the day with a fine hike up Mill Creek Ridge. And, thanks to Greg’s inspiration, I paid more attention to how colorful playgrounds can be so at least the post can qualify for the Kodachrome challenge. It could qualify for a musical challenge too, if that ever became a theme.
