Go take a hike…

Yesterday, June being Outdoor Month, I went to Chinsegut Conservation area for a photography hike.  Such a peaceful morning to learn about the birds and the bees, 6174630016_IMG_9086 2

… and the flowers and the trees! 6174630016_img_9039.jpg6174630016_IMG_9066 2Even the resurrection vine.
