full I've concluded that all hiking hats are goofy and decided to embrace that.

full All these cracks in the canyon walls were leaking water, and most of them had things growing out of them.

full Farther up the canyon, the water had carved all these beautiful pools and curved surfaces.

full We spent a lot of time looking at the pools and all the living things growing in them.

full Weird-textured rock (and the tip of my walking stick for scale).

full Here it looks like I was taking pictures of the cool pools, but I was actually trying to catch a big, bright red dragon fly in flight (which is impossible, by the way).

full I finally caught one! (It was sitting still.)
