The understory of the understory.
The gills of a mushroom-
This is where golf tees are made- Cup Lichen
The ridge of this hill was so lonely. Although impressive to be able to see such distances, I couldn't help wonder what this old pine forest looked like pre-fire.
It was nice to just sit and watch the snowfall with this view as the backdrop.
Scanning the horizon for sunrise...
Is it dead? Is it alive? What ever state it is, it was worthy of a shot. Reminds me of sea coral.
This resembles the forest I'm in. Dead sticks standing from the fire while the new growth trees make their way into the forest.
A nice little fluff ball.
The sun popped out just in the right time for this. I can't get over the contrast from red to green and the textures in that red leaf plant thingy.
A little more green making it's way into the forest.
Don't forget the little views too!
So much detail, yet so fragile.
Everytime I look at this, I want eggs. The tops of the mushrooms with paprika and pepper apparently.
Sort of eerie, minus the sort.
I'm glad I did stay up. What a view!
What I thought was some amazing meteor breaking up in the sky, may have actually been the first SpaceX launch of Starlink. A series of 60 satellites all launched seconds apart. Unfortunately with a long exposure, it just looks like a streak rather than the dots that they were.
The green zone between Horseshoe and Lake Three.
Moody islands on Lake One
Hike Out - Just before sunrise - Good morning Mirror Lake
Mirror Lake Camp - Watching The Sunrise
Good morning Powwow!
Trees still budding and flowering up on the northland.
More flowering somethings. I walked by this plant many times on the way to the lake for water refills. I figured I'd capture it before it got stepped on. Amazingly, it survived all our foot traffic.
Another great dinner supplied by Trailtopia
Nothing wrong with a little chocolate oatmeal for a relaxing breakfast as I watch the day wake up.
