On the edge of nothing

There was a strange fogginess this morning when the girls and I went outside after breakfast. 

The canyon behind our house was filled with fog, but the backyard itself was not.  

I don't think the photograph captures the feeling of nothingness beyond the back fence; it felt like we were on the edge of a big empty. 

P.S. Unfortunately,  the photo does capture the ravages inflicted on our lawn by cut backs on water, gophers (sorry, Leda--the bounce sheets/ammonia didn't work for us) a sprinkler head overgrown by ferns, and our refusal to use lawn fertilizer/weed killer because of the dogs!

Hard to believe you have gophers with two Cardis on duty! We get rabbits venturing in, but only when the boys are inside. They have even managed to catch one or two, which of course doesn't bode well for the bunny.
