Lizard Head



There's a famous rock formation around here called Lizard Head. This isn't it. The famous Lizard Head is just a big block on a giant one- for years I thought the head had already fallen off. And then just walking along the Galloping Goose trail I came upon this beauty. Hey there Lizard Head!

We saw "The Hurt Locker" in Telluride last night. Wow, two films in a theatre, two nights in a row, and both directed by women! (Julie and Julia the night before.)

I liked "The Hurt Locker" ever so much better, though I could have done without all the handheld photography. It's a suspense movie set in Iraq. The lead, Jeremy Renner, has a touch of Russell Crowe and a touch of Elvis. wooh!

However, it resulted in nightmares in which I was pleading to exchange Farmville points for a "get out of the army now" pass as we marched over the Colorado mountains to Sawpit.

It's the Old Salamander of the Mountain!

By the way, thanks for steering me clear of Julie and Julia. I like quirky and charming, but not obtuse and cutesy wootsey.

Reading John Muir before turning off the light is a good way to have decent dreams. Usually.

Did you photoshop that picture at all?

No Photoshop at all other than to size it smaller to fit blog, that's the amazing thing of it. I just looked up and there it was.

Before I read a word, I looked at the photo and thought "lizard". Buy the land, make a road, charge admission.
