winding along
a mountain road

through a crack in a mountain 

a mossy island
natures grace

colorful pebbles,
eye candy

delighted at each bend of the road

to leap over bushes

leaving his scent 

looking in all directions

Honoring Wildflowers & a Bear

such a lovely time of year

we were blessed
with the spotting of a black bear rooting around
in the distance

flowers in their best attire

It's the Season of Fawns

even though this post is about fawns
i am leading with a Many Glacier Lake

and adorable

two mammas and three fawns
they all wander about together
