I spotted this sign at a rest area near Phoenix, Arizona. Anyone who knows me will tell you the only thing I hate more than a snake is a scorpion. When I lived in Panama I had a couple near misses with them. It still gives me shivers to even think about it! ACK! I read once that a black florescent light would make a scorpion glow in the dark. I was creeped out enough a couple times that I actually bought a battery powered, hand held black light. A few times I lurked around the house with my light checking doors, windows and floors to see if I could spot any of the little devils glowing but never did. The heart attach I would have had if I did would have REALLY been dangerous!
While visiting Sedona, my friends and I sat our alarm clocks for very early each morning. We wanted to be out and about before the sun rose. On the advice of another photographer part of our adventures included a pull over half way up the airport road. The first morning we only climbed half way to the top. But on the second day we climbed all the way to the top to enjoy the sunrise. My friend Julie snapped the first photo of me setting up a shot. I have to include it to set up the second shot. On the decent from the summit I found a little tree growing sideways out of the rocks. So, with a small tilt of the camera we created the perfect shot for my “I Wish I Could/I’m Sorry I Did,” theme….
