It was about 0855 when we got started on the walk from the Castle. It was going along well and uneventful until we topped the rise at the far end of the loop. Then a few feet farther along something looked wrong over in the near desert brush. So the OFM slowed and got very careful. When we found the right clear view it was a big surprise.

Our guess is that a big wind grabbed a folding chair from the area and carried it over the desert and let it go. We were about a half mile out from the campground and there was no crushed brush to look like a human had been involved.

This afternoon the OFM decided to do some homework on his art efforts. A recommendation on one of the many videos he has watched is to pick out something you are not good at but need frequently and practice it.  Well the OFM definitely needs help on leaves.  So he got busy doing leaves. He wore out seven erasers and three pencils but eventually produced these four leaves.

We think this was a serious improvement over the usual  product. We chose a C- for a grade on them.

Then he finished out the afternoon visiting with neighbors until it was time to head back inside. Yep it was a good day of trying to have tooooo much fun.
