Lower Calf Creek Falls Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument

The Falls is reached by a three mile hike (6 miles round trip) along the floor of a canyon. The hike is scenic and the Falls are spectacular.National monuments are protected by law to be enjoyed by all people and meant to be left forever wild. It would be criminal to let the government take away protections as it threatens to do.

On January 27, 2017 the president of the U.S. issued an order effectively banning all Muslims from seven specific countries from entering the United States. The next day, January 28, 2017 targeted people were removed from airplanes that were in flight when the ban was announced and detained. Thousands demonstrated at airports around the country and lawyers by the hundreds showed up to help and represent those who were detained and prevented from entering the U.S.  Within days federal judges around the country issued injunctions to stop the detentions and to halt enforcement of the order. As of today an appeals court has refused to stay the injunction. Within days all of those detained were released.

Demonstrations continued the next day and  tens of thousands of people in cities and towns around the country and around the world rallied and marched  that weekend, forcing the government to modify the order to allow legal residents (Green Card holders) to enter the country even before the injunctions issued. As of today, February 5, demonstrations, rallies and marches in support of the refugees and immigrants are still ongoing.

These photos are from a rally in support of immigrants and refugees at Battery Park City on Sunday January 29, 2017.

Last bloom of the season

last-rose-of-summer1210201611

the last roses usually bloom at the end of October or the beginning of November where I live. Because of an extraordinarily warm summer this beauty began to bloom at the end of November, a month later than usual. I took it inside before the first frost so that it could bloom fully and remind me during cold December days of late spring when the first roses bloom
