Our plans to hike Sequoia being foiled by the snow, we decided instead to go see Painted Rock
After driving to the middle of nowhere,
we walked along a muddy path for miles,
but it was totally worth it.
The rock itself was really beautiful,
and so were the paintings.
Ted and I spent some time talking about graffiti, and the human compulsion to make a mark,
and then we tried to make friends with an owl.
We walked back to the car,
and took a lot of the muddy path with us.
