Afternoon sunlight filters through trees
and dances atop the lake like twinkling diamonds.
In the distance,
peaks above the tree line with their pockets of snow that stayed all summer
add to the beauty and feeling of remoteness
the trill and rat-a-tat-tat of birds create the soundtrack.
Golden aspen leaves
contrast their beauty with pines
while inside I sip coffee
sharing breakfast time
Mesmerized by the moonrise
not able to wait til it rises fully
to capture its beauty.
between crevices and cracks
canyon wall beauties 🌺🌼🌸
Late afternoon hike
views of distant snow capped peaks,
ever changing skies
hosting magnificent clouds
snow covered divide
the full moon played peek-a-boo
in the western sky
