Before I had even realized it, she was on the opposite shore... she backed away from the shore, a bit, to take the first photo, above.
Annette took this view of me waiting, as she returned from her trek around the pond.
Here, you can begin to see how we got higher, faster - compared to the cliffs on the other side of the wash.
At this point, we decided to take a path right up the hill, to come out just to the right of the new neighbor's house (behind Annette, here).
As I was approaching the top of the slick rock, Annette took this photo of the side of the new house. It is 'intended' that this metal siding 'will appear to rust' and turn a red color similar to the surroundings. Looking closely, you can begin to see it 'turning' in spots.
By this time, we had been out quite a while, I guess. Seemed quite normal, to me, but Larry and Nancy had begun to worry, it seems. Larry started down the wash a ways. Nancy was on the back (east) deck, with her binoculars - you can see her, here, as I passed by the other house, on the road. This was close enough, we could shout at each other and be heard.
