Mourning Dove & Map Rock



The top photo is a mourning dove nesting on my sister's garage - it has no problem with the garage door going up and down just a couple feet away but it is very shy when it comes to being photographed, it took a couple days of being patient.  The other two pictures are of Map Rock along the Snake River.  It dates to pre-historic times and shows what are believed to be the best hunting spots along the Snake River and its tributaries.

Tomorrow we're heading towards Yellowstone, stopping at Crater of the Moon National Monument along the way.  Cheers, hope everyone is safe and happy - steve.

I have sat on rocks with Petroglyphs. They feel so connected to ancient times. I know they aren't any more ancient than the rocks next to them but . . .

I love the mourning dove's call. My mother always hated it because she said it sounds so sad but I think it is beautiful.
