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


  1. The way of the first picture seems to be leading to the happiness of the spirit. It is simply wonderful.
    Have a good one, Tammie !

    Love that you enjoyed the saxifrage, i am also smitten with it. Tiny tiny indeed!

    Thank you for stopping by!


  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!

  16. I enjoy this evening walk! Thanks ! :)

    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.

  19. 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.

  20. Such beautiful scenery!

  21. That is a beautiful evening walk, Tammie. The pink flower is very striking and your shot of the spotted saxifrage is gorgeous. I hope you and the bear cross paths only at a very safe distance!

  22. It's amazing the beauty you show us ...
    Friend, huge kiss.

    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

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

  25. So many stories and possibilities in that landscape!

  26. 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...

  27. 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.

  28. 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 :)

  29. Such an amazing landscape (and then some) and I love, love, love the patterns in this collection … in the shadows, the clouds, the buds and hillsides …

  30. Very lovely photoes !

    Thanx for sharing!

    Hugs :)

  31. Dearest Tammie Lee! Good morning to you as I stroll down again on your beautiful page.Many thanks for your comment on our European link party! Ya know, you would be fabulous as a participant for yet another idea I have (I'm the ring leader for too many ideas!) for an AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL travel link party for next year! But I have to pace myself...it's just a thought!

    Enjoy yet another fabulous summer day! Anita

  32. You live amidst such beauty. Thanks for sharing.
