A Sucker for Sagebrush

Mule Canyon, not far from Blanding, was a nice surprise, packed as it was with big sagebrush, my favorite in-the-wild plant. I treasure it for its sharp perfume, especially after a light summer rain, and its varied shapes and colorings. What do you mean, you thought they all looked alike?

This isn’t the main attraction in Mule Canyon, though. About two miles along the trail we arrived at the House On Fire ruin, and that is something to see. We set up our tripods in mid-morning, the suggested time for photographing the fire, and weren’t disappointed.
