When a Hike Becomes A Nature Walk   Leave a comment

At first glance, you might think these two images are of the same mountain wildflower.

Mountain flowers have a way of slowing the pace of a hike to the pace of a nature walk, especially when hiking with very knowledgeable people — Thanks, David.

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.
