Photos of the day, Saturday August 3, 2013

This was only my third climb up the mountain since it reopened and the second attempt to see how my new (to me) camera would perform.  Fortunately we have had plenty of rain these past weeks and the flowers have started to appear again on the mountain.

One would think that it is spring again on the mountain, especially with all of the Apache plume that is in bloom.

I can’t help myself when I come across a purple geranium, especially when it’s inhabited by a pollinator.

I’m giving the camera two thumbs up.  After today’s session I’ve decided to retire my Olympus 5060 zoom as my hiking camera.

I’m adding this final image, not because it’s great, but because it’s great to see rain drops left on leaves long after the storm passed.  The mountain is getting wet again and that’s good news.
