Hiking

Didn’t get to go out much last year because of a busted shoulder, was able to start up again this winter.

Elephants head, first time doing this one during the day. Usually a midnight hike we do once a year.

Just up from my place, found out I have a new neighbour. Tracks were within 24 hours of taking the picture. Was stalking a deer for about 350 ft before the deer ran off across the US border, didn’t get to see if the cougar had dinner or not.

And a throw back to one of the bigger hikes I did with a few friends when I was working down in Oregon.
Mt. Elanor on the Olympic peninsula, WA
Only spot I could snap a picture on this stretch of the climb.

What a great thread! Inspiring scenery. Beautiful photography. Personal stories.

And now as a break from all of that, here are some photos from my hike this morning at Lake Elmo Park Reserve in Minnesota poorly shot on my iPhone 5.

This landscape is a bit more... Subtle.

Though the lakes are pretty.

The wildflowers are largely non-existent. Mostly what we have is invasive Bromus inermis, sun and shade. It was encouraged by our very helpful highway department who wanted something that could easily establish itself anywhere they worked. Check! But here a few Anemone canadensis that have managed to hold on.
