I love especially the first photo from the top and from bottom last and second last photo. In the last photo the path is very small, nearly visible, but is full of fall colors. I would like to walk there. Fantastic.
That’s a trail that I enjoy very much. It is part of a wildlife corredor as the large animals move from one large mountain to another. It’s quite wild with some good views and very pretty in the fall. Also a good place to pick huckleberries!
We are in the part of the year where storms can be either snow or rain. That was a rather warm day, so I’m pretty sure it was just distant rain. “Full force” is an excellent way to put it. Today I saw that the larch are also in full color in many places.
I love seeing those distant mountains too, Jack. Some bring me memories of times when I was hiking on and among them, others that I haven’t yet visited call out to me for a visit. Both are pleasant sensations!
That was a fairly open place on the ridge where there is enough light for the los bushes to grow. That trail has many places like that and it makes it very pleasant to hike there in the fall. In spring, it also has lots of wildflowers.
