Balsamroot Etc.


Balsamroot, still resplendent in higher elevations where summer is a short season, especially this very chilly, wet year. I took this in The Sound of Music Meadow high above Granite Canyon while hiking last week with LaFon.

This makes me wish to take off my shoes, lift up my skirts and run through the meadow!

Me too on running through the meadows. There aren't any chiggers there, like there are here in Arkansas! I'm very envious, Web. Take a deep breath of that cool air for us all!

If Dick Cheney had his way, that photo would be bristling with trucks, roads, and drilling platforms.

Paula, there are no chiggers, but lots of mosquitoes! It's been a cool, wet summer and fall is setting in. I look forward to getting back to some warmer weather soon!
