Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Alpine Hike

It was HOT in the desert today.  So rather than deal with the triple-digit temperatures, I decided to go for a hike up around 10,000′ in the nice, breezy, mid-70’s.  God, I love where I live…

As you can see…there were plenty of butterflies and damselflies fitting about.  Looks like it’s gonna be a pretty decent wildflower season up there, as well.  Should see some serious blooms coming off over the next couple weeks…

Anyhow…thanks for coming along!
