A day in the Park, Glacier National Park
Autumn turns to Winter
A week ago
I walked along a river, the sun was out, it was lovely and warm. There were rocks cuddled in moss.
it felt like autumn again.
still appeared as golden torches lighting up the mountains.
I have no idea what plant it is. This close up shows me details my eyes could not see. I am mesmerized at the design for protecting and sending off it's seeds.
Let me know if you know what it is.
It is a winter wonderland out there.
I plowed for the first time of the season.
collecting seeds and seem happy as can be.
3 weeks of Warm Sunny Autumn, now Snow....
Autumn began with beautiful sunny days
autumn colors turned the world magical
after the storm, the mountains would breathe and make clouds
a great way to learn (with a teacher)
and found my first Chanterelles! Yum
in the rain that turned to snow.
At times I wondered if my van would disappear into the flooded road.
cloaked in autumn colors.
pink, red, amber, peach and golds.
I gathered a little flock of birds for daily company
3 snowfalls so far
Autumn is simply showing off this year!
These photos were taken last week in Glacier National Park
it has been a long time since I have seen it like this, golden and glowing
Blue skies, no smoke
(though we did have smoke from other states fires recently)
drove to the top of Logan Pass
where the views change ones heart and breath
the colors sometimes come and go quite swiftly,
this year though they are moving right along, yet also lingering
I hope you are enjoying your autumn, or spring depending on where you are in the world.
Nature does have the ability to balance the whackiness of humans....
at least for me......
I hope for you too.
Sweet Little Nuthatch
About a year ago I slowly beckoned little birds to come to my hand for seed. This spring nesting season arrived & they took to the trees to nest and feast on insects, (all but three birds that is). Now that nesting season is over my little flock is slowly growing.
