The sun was shining around some clouds whilst I was doing some salubrious endorphin inducing aerobic activity running around the Crystal Canyon Natural Area's trail a few laps.
I thought maybe with the sun shining on the canyon that the illusive crystals might be doing some glistening.
I saw no glistening. Except for the sweat beads glistening on my personal epidermal layer.
My computer based weather monitoring device just started flashing red. When I clicked on SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT I read the following...
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
Well, it is almost 2:30pm, so the above WEATHER STATEMENT is about to become ineffective. I have seen some wind gusts and a little bit of rain has fallen. But, no thunderstorm action.
Enough about the weather, now back to Crystal Canyon.
The above info is gleaned from one of the informative signs in the Crystal Canyon Natural Area. That verbiage sure makes it seem as if one should expect to see some crystals whilst one traverses this natural area's topography.
The next time I go running around the Crystal Canyon Natural Area maybe it would help if I brought my magnifying glass with me.
