Yesterday I took my camera with me. The day was something.
The water on Sag was as clear as the sky.
These plants---some relative of horsetails, or maybe just a form of horsetails without the bristles. When the kids were really little we used to take them apart and almost put them back together, like toys. I think somebody told me a common name for them was tinkertoys. Or we made that up, because it fits. They have silica in them--so they are a little like sandpaper--know the ones I mean?
The squirrels are so so busy. Denali feels the need to supervise....she keeps an eye on them at all times.
It looks like an apple, but it's actually a fat rose hip.
For flowers--this time of year---we get purple asters. Not bad!
And then there are the pines.
And the enormous sky------it was a day.
