White Domes Trail

IMG_1343On our way to more trails to hike, we saw a group of bighorn sheep with a couple of sheep youngsters.  The little guys were jumping with no fear from high up on rock to rock.  Little humans seem to like the same sport in our campground.  The kids scamper away from their parents and in a blink of an eye they are teetering on a ledge.  “Look at me, Dad!  Look how far up I am!”  I know you need to give your kids freedom to explore and fly from the nest, but not literally fly.

The Professionals Valley of fireThe White Domes Trail included a very narrow slot canyon.  Only walking single file will allow you to pass through.  Along the trail are remnants of the movie set for “The Professionals” with Lee Marvin and Burt Lancaster.  Another movie for us to watch and pick out the Valley of Fire landmarks shown in the movie.

We were finally able to get cell phone service at this stop.  Made a few calls to the Moms and brother, John, to catch up with family news.
