Safe Walk?

Bongo looking at the trailI decided to take my person for a walk a little earlier than usual today.

We had the trails to ourselves – except for the lizards and birds, that is – because nobody uses my trails in the middle of the day in the summer.

The clouds were covering the sun and it was not quite as hot as usual.

But that’s what I was watching.

.

.

.

The clouds.

Clouds

Pretty harmless so far.

I think we can keep going.

Cloud buildups with the sun on top

The sun’s still around.

Let’s walk further.

Cloud buildups behind Thunder Mountain

We’d better hurry.

That cloud’s beginning to look like something.

I’m not sure what, but it’s something.

Dark cloud buildups

Ummmmm…

Dark cloud buildups

Alright, I’m outta’ here.

That’s enough walking for today.

White Fluffy Clouds

Thunder cloud build upCheck out these white fluffy clouds.

They look pretty, don’t they?

And how can such a pretty thing be anything but harmless?

Well, I’m here to tell you – looks can be deceiving.

Every year about this time, these clouds start showing up.

.

***

They even sneak up from behind the big rocks.

And these clouds are up to no good.

They’re full of all kinds of mischief and devious things.

Things like thunder, and lightning.

And every one of them is out to get me.

It might not be so bad if they showed up every once in awhile.

But they hang around my trails and my house for almost three months every year.

I’ve got to figure out something.

There must be some way to get them to go away.

If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Because I’ve just about had it with these soft looking, fluffy clouds that aren’t so soft and fluffy.

See, I told you.

Their true nature is finally coming out.

Dark and nasty looking.

That’s what they turn into when they give off their thunder.

Bongo looking at more thunder clouds behind Sedona red rocks

Oh no! There’s more over there.

I’m outta’ here!

Could somebody come get me when it’s all over?

The Rain Changes Everything

Bongo looking away from a prickly pear blossomIt rained last night.

Really hard.

For a long time.

It’s been a very long time since we had rain.

So today when I went out on my trails, everything looked different.

The first different thing I found was my girlfriend Lucy.

The rain must have brought her out, because I haven’t seen her in a very long time.

And then I saw…

Hey person, look over there.

No, not that direction.

There’s nothing for you to take pictures of that you would be interested in looking at in that direction.

***

There have been no flowers on my trails for awhile now.

It’s been nice.

.

But a late blooming prickly pear popped out after the rain and of course my person had to take a picture.

Prickly pear blossom

At least there were only two blossoms on all of my trails so I got my person moving along fairly quickly.

And then I saw it!!!

My puddle!

Bongo by his puddle

My puddle had returned!

It’s been so long since I’ve seen my puddle that I almost forgot about it.

But my person said we couldn’t stay forever – it was getting dark.

So we saw a few ho hum things on our way back from my puddle.

And some clouds.

Boring.

What’s the Mystery?

Bongo sniffing a bushWhat mystery?

Where?

I met one of my neighbors on my trails today and he said there was a mystery.

I’m trying to figure out what he’s talking about.

How can Detective Dog solve a mystery if he doesn’t know what it is?

Maybe I’ll figure it out if I put on my Detective Dog hat.

.

.

Okay, where’s that mystery?

My neighbor was talking about what?

The mystery of the clouds?

If they’re not on my trails and I can’t smell them, then it must not be a mystery worthy of Detective Dog’s time.

Besides, what’s so mysterious about clouds?

Strange cloud shapes?

I’m leaving the mystery of the strange cloud shapes to my neighbor.

I’m heading back inside. It’s awfully windy out here.

No Snow

Bongo on virgin snowYou see this picture here?

It didn’t happen today, or this week, or even this month.

This snow happened a very long time ago.

I haven’t had any snow to play in at all this winter.

And some of my friends have way more snow than they want.

You’d think it could get evened out a little better.

So I’m trying to figure out how I can get some of those clouds down here to play in.

.

They look like they might be as much fun as snow.

Wind swept clouds over red rocks

It looks like God’s paintbrush almost ran out of paint when He was brushing those clouds across the sky.

Clouds over Thunder Mountain

Oh wait, I think I’ve figured out how to get those clouds down here.

Clouds

Almost anyway.

Hey, what’s this?

Clouds with sun dog

Isn’t that little colored spot in the sky called a sun dog?

Now that’s my kind of cloud.

Erasure

Bongo looking under a rockToday there wasn’t a single car parked by my trails.

This doesn’t happen very often.

I had to check under the rocks to make sure there were no cars hiding there.

But there weren’t.

And we didn’t see any people or dogs on my trails either.

I don’t know what happened to everybody.

But I think they were all erased.

Because I caught somebody in the act. Somebody trying to erase my rocks too, and they hadn’t finished yet.

Cloud covered rocks in the distance

Red rocks covered in clouds

I’d better be careful so nobody erases me.

Because my trails are extra fun today.

For some reason there are more puddles than usual.

Bongo looking at a puddle

I love splashing through all the puddles – and tasting them too.

And today I found something really unusual.

I hope they weren’t behind all that erasing, because I’ve never seen anything quite like them on my trails.

Maybe they’re here checking out what’s happening, and they’re here to help.

But what if they’re the cause of the erasures?

I think I’d better keep my distance.

Bubbles on red rocks

Watch out everybody.

Stay away from those bubbles!

Creepy Cloudy Days

Bongo creeping along in a wash with puddlesCloudy days can be creepy here.

You never know what you might step on when you’re creeping along in a wash.

Hey, wait a minute!

Person, you put up the wrong picture.

I don’t get creeped out in my wash. I like stepping in puddles.

Put that other picture up.

.

Thunder Mountain with a spot lit up

The light goes away on cloudy days.

Or it’s up way too high to reach.

This isn’t right either.

I can find my way by smelling things.

I don’t care if there’s not much light.

You’ve still got the wrong picture, person.

Sugarloaf with black dots in the sky above it

That’s better. That’s what I’m looking for.

Or is it?

That looks like you got some black dots on your lens.

I think you need to clean your camera, person.

Ravens in the sky

I think you cleaned your camera the wrong way. Now those black dots are bigger.

Oh yeah, that’s what I was talking about.

On cloudy days the ravens fly low over that rock on my trails.

They always look like they’re up to no good.

At least they don’t come down and dive bomb me but they sure flock together on days like this.

I tried to talk to those ravens and find out what they were doing up there.

I even threatened to get my Detective Dog hat and investigate.

But nothing seemed to work.

I don’t think those ravens understood what I was saying to them, because they kept repeating the same word over and over again.

I asked them if they were going to come back every cloudy day and all they said was…

Ravens Together

Nevermore.
