Death Valley Friend

DaGoddess @ 04:00

I made a friend while playing in Mosaic Canyon. Everyone else had gone on ahead. I took my time, not believing I’d make it very far. It later became apparent I could, but by the time I’d figured that out, everyone was heading back toward me. Sigh. Thankfully, my friend kept me company for a while.

The bottom photo is for size comparison only. If you’ll note, the cap from a water bottle (1/2 liter) was set relatively close to the little bug. Kind of tells you how small he was. I found him while trying to figure out how I was going to get a particular slick portion of rock (it was marble-like). When I say slick, I mean slick. There was one section (next to where I found this bug) where people actually sat down for a bit of a slide. It was as if everyone had turned into children on a playground. Yes, I ended up doing the same myself after I got done playing about.

A friendly little bug

  1. He’s a wild little thing, isn’t he? :biggrin:

  2. Yep. And I found another later on in a different location (couldn’t possibly have been the same guy because that would have been way too weird) and he crawled all over me, but that photo was too blurry.

  4. nope. I don’t run screaming because of a cute little bug. BIG BUGS, maybe. Especially the sort that can suck your brains out. (I have to keep the few I have)
