Cape Flattery

The pups experience waves for the first time! They didn't like it :(

Today, the boy and I went to Cape Flattery, the most north western most point in the lower forty eight states. It was about a 4 hour drive to the trail head. We saw several kinds of wildlife including bald eagles, starfish, seals, a sea otter, a possible puffin, some odd birds with red beaks, yet to be determined. Of course sea gulls were everywhere!

Painted Desert Petroglyphs

During our trip to Washington, we traveled through Arizona's Petrified Forest National Park. Here are some Petroglyphs contained within the park. It is also home to another "Newspaper rock".
I once heard someone say that if we were to disappear today, the future generations would have nothing solid to figure out our technology or history. Our books and computers would not survive as long as these petroglyphs have. It seems our ancestors had it right, if you carve the important stuff in stone, it will be there forever. Makes you wonder what they were trying to say to the future generations. Makes me wonder what I would say in stone if given the opportunity.
