I dyed the outfit.  My daughter photographed this sweet little baby.

Hoodoos are tall, thin, spires of rock with variable thicknesses, having a "totem pole" shape.  They consist of soft stone topped by harder rock that erodes much more slowly.

We stayed with friends in Hurricane.   a topographical map for planning a mountain biking trip.  Notice that the gorgeous Zion National Park is nearby.

    Love the old car...a Studebaker I think?
    And Earnest and Oliver are just adorable!

  3. Love the photos! The mice do look tasty!

  4. So many great T's. That old car looks like a Nash Rambler from the 50’s!

  5. Great photos and a very clever "T" post. I especially love the photo of the chocolate mice. Very cute (and tasty I bet)!

  6. The tie dye pic made me smile! How cute...

  7. Love your pictures! Clever post!

  8. Well, how cute are Oliver and Earnest holding paws! The cherry mice look yummy good and I love the hoodoos pics, not to mention that name!! Hoodoos!!

  9. Loved the views best till I saw Oliver and Earnest!

  10. Tasty mice and sweet kitties! Puuurrrrrfect! Love the pictures - the tree reminds me of the Cypress near Carmel, CA.

  11. "Tasty" and "Top down" are my favorites. Love that car! :)

  12. Gorgeous travel photos today!

  13. Oliver and Earnest are so precious! The mice are cute and so is that baby! You always take such great photos Margaret! Hoodoo is a ski area here in Oregon so I didn't know it was something else too!

  14. I love the mix of subjects that you think of for some of these letter posts. Of course your kitties are adorable and the vacation photos are beautiful. Love the mice, too! So creative.

  15. We stayed in a very "quaint" motel near Kootenay when we were traveling with our cousins in 2001. Well, at least our cousin Fred called it quaint because he had made the reservations. Cousin Laura and I just rolled our eyes when we saw where we were staying for the night. I first learned about hoodoos in 1988 when we were on a trip with other cousins. We stayed at Numtacha Lodge on the Jasper-Banff highway. It was a lovely old place and had chairs in the lobby that were made from moose antlers. I was almost afraid to sit in them!

  16. love the twigs, the tree in Fairmont Springs, the hoodoos, and of course, the nash first car back in the day. heehee.

  17. wonderful T offerings! who knew from hoodoos?!

  18. Terrific T's! I want to visit the hoodoos now, what an amazing place.
