Lovely Equinox to you, Autumnal or Vernal

: yesterday


: in town, trees at all stages are donning new colors
 
: Kokanee Salmon are spawning


: sunsets hold sacred light


: the river is lined with gold and green


: high mountain roads free of snow, still beckon 

: forest plants share their autumn colors

~

wishing you all 
a rich Equinox!

Two Medicine


I went to Two Medicine this weekend
sunshine called for another camping trip


the wind never paused
not once!


clouds rose from the tops of mountains
as though they were the mountain's breath
a wonderful show as
they moved and changed shape swiftly


Running Eagle Falls is a well loved waterfall

earlier in the year, Spring and Early summer
 water also flows from the top of the falls:

Autumn is Dancing with Summer


watery eye candy


the spirit of autumn breathed on a summer leaf and look what happened


music to my ears and eyes


a couple weeks ago.... just a tinge of gold in the woodland


another glimpse of Many Glacier


a visitor at my pond


along a tiny brook
high mountain flowers


traveled over the mountains
a long dirt road
and 
came upon a black bear

~
a bit of this
a bit of that
summer leans into autumn

Sunrise and Beyond


the sun began to light up the world


as the clouds shifted and danced in the sky


we walked a forested path
that brought us to this pristine vista


our day overflowed with immense beauty


with theater in the sky

Moose


there they were
dining in the lake


heads bowed
below the surface of the water


eating lake bottom plants
in the evening light


a dear 
and 
touching sight


the calf stayed near
its mom


as she ate
for hours


alert to every sound
~

such an honor to sit at the forests edge
to be near them
