Summer/Fall

There is an old road not far from where I live that many times serves as a place for a short conditioning hike, as it did this morning. The first mile includes an ascent of about a thousand feet which does wonders for one’s cardiopulmonary system

then the road levels off a bit and provides some nice valley views and, this time of year, some Fall colors.

The return trip is good for the legs and this morning contained as well one of Nature’s pleasant little surprises with summer colors; a Yellow Rabbitbrush in bloom.
