Anyone There?

Faithful readers, please forgive me.  Her Side has been royally buried under the work mountain for the past couple of weeks.  I’m working on a new post right now, and will put it up on Wednesday.  I’m so sorry I’ve been neglectful.

Here, have something cute to tide you over.

It’s a wild mountain…no, no, it’s just my cat.  Isn’t she cute?  Her Side will be back from hiatus soon!  Hang in there with me!

The road into the east entrance to Yellowstone, circa September 2004.  (To be fair, I don’t remember just how far from the entrance I was here.  Somewhere past the middle of Wyoming, at least…)

Happy Friday!  To my fellow Bostonians: Happy Marathon Weekend!  To everyone else: haha, you have to work on Monday.

Since we had fun with signage last week, this week’s photo is another sign.  This isn’t a warning sign — though, I suppose that depends on your perspective.

The lawyers out there will find this amusing.  What makes it even more amusing is that this sign was at the Grand Canyon, at the first viewing point you reach after entering the park through the East Entrance.  It was on a teeny tiny postage stamp of grass with a couple of trees on the side of a parking lot next to the restrooms.  They couldn’t have been more obscure about this if they tried.

Now, lawyers, dredge up your memories of ConLaw.  What kind of a forum is this sign attempting to designate?  Open?  Limited?  Designated?  All of the above?

Happy Good Friday!

Today, instead of a sweeping wilderness or wildlife photo, I’m giving you the best National Park warning sign I’ve ever seen.  National Parks are kind of funny about warning signs.  They tend to be a little ridiculous looking.  This one was in Shenandoah National Park, and different from most, looking handmade.  My friend made it into a t-shirt for me.

Happy Friday!

TGIF!   The weather in Boston is finally gorgeous, and I intend to spend tomorrow morning on my inaugural hike of the 2010 spring season, before the weather remembers that it’s March and gets crappy again.

Today, I give you a photo of a hoodoo in Queen’s Garden of Bryce Canyon.  This hoodoo is the reason it is named Queen’s Garden.  Can you see why?

Yep, that’s a buffalo.  Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.  Happy Friday!
