flower patches look like snow
on the meadows.
The sweet smell of the Cliffrose drew my nose, and thus my eyes, skyward.

I have the Best job in the world! Or so I think.
I work four 10-hour days and get three days off. And work is like play for a Park Ranger at Grand Canyon National Park. Plus I’m seasonal by choice, so only work six months a year.
My daily schedule is diverse, from working in the visitor center helping people plan their visit whether here for four hours or four days, to presenting programs about history, condors, geology, ecology, archaeology, paleontology. I know, that’s a lot of ologies. I call myself a generalologist.
Monday I went out on the Walhalla Plateau, after a few office chores.
Out at Cape Royal the flowers are blooming.
I was there two weeks ago and only saw a few yellow daisy-like flowers.
Now I’m enjoying the first of my three days off. Life is hard, but guess I’ll suffer through it. I sure hope you love your job (or retirement) as much as I do.

At 8200 feet summer blooms come a little late. Yet summer is certainly here at daily temperatures reaching 80 degrees.
This New Mexico Locust, Robinia neomexicana, is part of the Legume Family and the pea-shaped flowers taste like, you guessed it, peas. But watch out for the thorns.
Hope to get out tomorrow to see what else is in bloom.
