I’ve noticed odd plants, animals, and natural features recently and wondered if they were real or surreal.
I had an odd feeling when my flight flew over Mt Rainier a few weeks ago. Just as we passed over its peak, this strange creature emerged from its depths. Yikes! I was glad I was able to take a quick snapshot before it disappeared.
While exploring Crack in the Ground on a June field trip, I was overcome by a sudden feeling of peacefulness. I paused when I noticed a movement from the corner of my eye. This benevolent Picasso face emerged from the rock walls and smiled and nodded at me.
On a recent hot afternoon, I dozed off in my comfortable recliner. I was awakened by a strange noise. A few feet away, I saw a weird creature. It had the head of a ground squirrel and the body of a cat. Was it real or surreal?
We went for a walk at Yaquina Head on the Oregon coast a week ago. One of my dogs was hesitant to walk along the beach, and I had to tug on her leash. When I looked down, I figured out why. This slithering seaweed monster was watching her every move.
A week ago, while out for my sunrise walk, I wondered why it already felt so warm outside. Then I noticed these red hot poker plants with small flames sprouting from their flowers. No wonder I felt hot!
On another smoldering day, I wandered aimlessly into the desert. My vision grew blurry and I rubbed my eyes. When I opened them, the world had changed. The colors were bright and intense.
The boulder next to me rumbled and shook in place. When I looked closer, I saw drawings of otherworldly beings on its face. Was it real or surreal? You be the judge.
