Mostly Wordless Wednesday...



The Little Painted Desert.

Not to be confused with the Big Painted Desert. Or upon further reflection, maybe that's just called The Painted Desert? It looks just like how I remember seeing the Painted Desert in my youth...only it's smaller. Which could be the reason someone prefaced the words "Painted Desert" with the word "little"

There are just no coincidences.

Or creativity when it comes to naming things apparently.

I'm thinking perhaps this is the start of the famed desert...I mean, even The Grand Canyon has a start...

All natural monuments start somewhere
(feel free to quote me on that)

Whatever the case may be...it was hot and windy and sandy...and it was the kind of windy that blew the hot sand into your eyes. Which makes me grateful that I wear glasses...because of the extra eye protection. The pieces of sand were no smaller than at the Big Painted Desert...and it was already kind of reminding me of my last dental visit when they kindly sandblasted my teeth for me.

I have a friend who, when I took him to the Grand Canyon for the first time, commented "Well, it's a great canyon. I'm not sure it's a grand canyon.

LOL, sandblasting dentists...but oh what a view! Gorgeous.

(hey maybe you could figure out a way to sandblast your teeth at the little painted desert, all eco-friendly and natural like! I am thinking the rinse and spit part will be kinda hard with all the sand that may find its way into your mouth, but other than that....)
