By Ted Grussing
… that seems to be the question this great blue heron is asking as we approached him on his little rock island in Watson Lake … he finally decided we were cool and allowed us to get very close (a few feet) and shoot some great portrait shots of him … so close that it was difficult to get a focus because we were too close.
The shot below is a different look at the volcanic field than is normal for me. The highway at the bottom is US 89 and traveling left to right it will take you up to Page and beyond. Mt. Elden is in the foreground and you can see the blobs of lava that were emitted … very viscous and very little outward flow. On the horizon from left to right is Bill Williams Mountain, Sitgreaves Mountain Kendrick Peak and finally the San Francisco Peaks … on the leftmost peak of them is Agassiz and then Humphreys Peak. Left of center near the top and below left of Sitgreaves is A-1, named after the ranch and home of A-1 steak sauce.
Late and need to wrap the day … have a beautiful day and smile.
