Evening Walk


such an inviting road
still closed to cars due to avalanches
perfect for wandering
(Eureka Mountains)


exquisite flowers cloak the earth
like stars dance in the skies


wonderful flowers for us to find


so much bear grass that it inspires joy


the precious and tiny spotted saxifrage


look at what i found on my cabin!
a muddy bear print
at shoulder height
about the size of my hand:


summer is full on here
with days around 90F
pretty hot, but nice with a breeze and shade

  13. Such a wonderful walk with you along that inviting road of discovery and so many different kinds of beautiful flowers to discover. I like the sound of your cooling breezes and shade, despite the heat. I'm not sure how I would feel so close to bears though!

  19. Wow, those stands of beargrass are fantastic! And the saxifrage , so pretty! I have missed a lot this year and now will have to start playing catch-up.

  20. Love to read of your roaming, Tammie. I thought at first the bear grass was Bistort - my grandson's favorite because it's "stinky." That bear grass may be leading the bears right up to your cabin - be wary! The Spotted Saxifrage is a tiny wonder of Nature - fabulous shot.

    Good gracious, for this city dweller, that sounds frightening, but most enchanting, Tammie Lee! Your area is so strikingly beautiful and rich with mysteries beyond my usual experience. You are enjoying your summer, aren't you!

    Thank you kindly for coming to visit me! Anita

  25. Glad you only found the paw print and not the bear. ;) The wildflowers are great!

  26. So many stories and possibilities in that landscape!

  27. The bear must have come to say "hi!" - you are a part of his/her life after all!:0)
    The "inviting" road is leading to such beauty, to such wonderful sights! I'm in awe!! Smiling...

  28. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. It brought me back here, and am I ever so glad. Your photography is awesome, I would love to wonder down that road.

    Not a big bear person, or a small bear person (grin) Hopefully his calling card isn't a way of saying he'll be back.

  29. Fantastic shots of the nature beauties! :) It seems to be a lovely place to walk, and I like the name of the mountains.
    Oh! The bear has left a note at your home, I would be scared! But you are brave! However, take care!
    Love, viola :)
