Red Rock

Sunday is usually the day we have church, but services were cancelled this week. So, we decided to head to Red Rock for some hiking. It was a gorgeous day. We had a great time exploring the rocks and having a picnic out in nature. Since we had quite a big rainstorm yesterday morning, there was water everywhere! The desert was so fresh from the rain. We saw a baby red spotted toad. He was so cute. We let him go after I got a good picture, even thought E wanted to keep him, of course. She loves all things reptile/amphibian. Go figure. My girly girl loves lizards and frogs and snakes. I was tripping over the cool holes that were found in the rocks everywhere. The ones in the picture below look like the face of a laughing ghost. I was really trying to get the holes inside the mouth. They reminded me of the cliff dwellings in the four corners area, in minature. Anyway, it was a good day! Enjoy the pictures:
