I'm not much of a hiker...hate the heat and the aching back that follows. However, we found some shorter hikes to take and spent every morning out walking. It's the best way to get beautiful pictures, and so I endured the hiking. I have to admit...it was worth every drop of sweat and the sore back that, after 4 days, did hit. The views were gorgeous. The area is well known for it's vortexes (natural magnetic forces) and so we thought we'd try to find several of them. You're supposed to be able to feel it...guess I'm not in tune to the earth...cause I wasn't feelin' it! The New Agers build all these little rock teepees...it was a weird sight out in the middle of the mountains. Here's John being goofy...I asked him if he was "feelin it".
