Escaping planet earth for a brief moment

first of all, sorry for the long absence.  Sometimes I don't want to blog and so I don't. 

Exploring Utah, my mom and drove through the desert yesterday to just explore and to give Max some time to run around.  We came across a clay mine that felt like a chunk of a different planet was implanted on ours.  I couldn't believe the colors, as first I thought it was some art instillation (not really but that is where my mind went).  Earth can be cool... 
happy to be wearing boots , poor max ended up with clay boots by the end of the day.
I thought this was so great, I saw a little max print adjacent to a horse shoe print.
