Susan Butcher was a four-time champion of the Iditarod Trail sled dog race. Granite was her greatest lead dog, but he didn’t start that way. He was a shy, scraggly pup that the others pushed around, but Susan saw his potential. Together they worked until he became leader of the team.
While they were training for the Iditarod, Granite became deathly ill. The veterinarians said he would never be strong enough to run the race. Granite refused to accept this, and slowly he started to recover. By the time of the race he was strong enough to start, but Susan wondered if he could finish the entire thousand-mile race. Confidently Granite guided the team into the lead of the race, when suddenly they were caught in a raging Arctic blizzard. Now Susan and the whole team depended on Granite to get them through the storm. He had to call on all his inner strength and courage to save them—if he could.

I took photos of this granite arch from many different angles but in the end I selected this one to share. The City of Rocks is located just a bit N.E. of where Nevada, Utah, and Idaho to Almo, Idaho. The easiest way to get there is south from Burley, Idaho to Almo. It is an internatinal destination for rock climbers who covet the steep granite spires. But it is also a place full of history (The California Trail) passed through here as did a stage coach route. Before the emigrants, Shoshone and probably Bannock Indians visited the game rich mountains and the much prized pinon pine nuts. This reserve has the largest stand of these trees (and the largest specimen), in the state. You can drive from sagebrush to aspen groves in 15 minutes. Well located campsites dot the are in strategic locations. It is a place to come back to. This was my first visit but it won't be my last. I already have my favorite campsite picked out. THE ROAD TRIP (November 2008): With gasoline at under $2.23 a gallon; a weather forecast for Utah that looked great for 10 days; I headed out on an impromptu road trip from my home in Eastern Washington, with three destinations on my "wish list": City of rocks near Almo, Idaho San Rafael Swell near Green River, Utah Davis Gulch near Escalante, Utah I made it to all three; took some interesting hikes; and just flat out enjoyed roaming about the countryside with camera (Canon G9) in hand, seeing places I hadn't seen before. Great trip! OMT

It never ceases to amaze me how these plants establish themselves in the most unlikely places. This one chose a granite wall. I mean GRANITE. How the hell does it get enough nutrients to survive? I mean, after what must be exhausting work, photosynthesizing all day, the least a man part of the plant should get, is a decent meal: "Now then pet, I'm so hungry I could eat a whole bag of peat with a horse-poo side-order. What's for dinner?" "Well, You can have roast granite, fried granite, grilled granite or boiled granite. Or, if you feel like increasing my monthly allowance a little, I'll do a nice beef wellington with a garlic and granite sauce." There is only one thing you can give these tough guys........respect.
