Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

I’m a bit late joining in the photo challenge this week, but I wanted to add my Companionable contribution. Click here to see other entries.

I have had many travelling companions accompany me on my adventures, but there was only one that I could pick for this challenge.

Watching the sun set over the Grand Canyon

Malcolm the Monkey has been joining me on holidays and trips for over twenty years. My dad bought him for me at a service station in Belgium when I was twelve, and I named him after our coach driver. He’s hung off my backpack, camped in the desert and survived many a Greyhound journey. In this photo he’s taking in the view over the Grand Canyon.
