If you look close (or maybe not so closely) at the top of the very dense forest, you can see the tower of the Ehrenberg Castle ruin. Below is a picture of the full castle, so you can tell just how dense the forest is when looking at it from the foot of the hill where it dwells.

Though sighting lizards in the Escalante/Horse Canyon area of Utah is not rare, it is rare to have one sit still long enough for you to grab a good shot of them unless you are willing to stay in one place for a long time. We didn’t have that luxury, so we’re very happy this guy didn’t find us too scary to pose.

During our trip to Switzerland, my niece and my mom were great partners. They had a lot of fun sharing experiences and hotel rooms (the good, the bad, and the ugly). Thanks for making Europe so memorable!
