PBP: of mountains, meadows, marshes and

June 25, 2012

MOOSE!  Or as my mother’s cousin likes to say “MEESE”!  (Plural of goose is geese so…)

Sometimes being Pagan can just mean enjoying the outdoors, living in the moment…even if that moment is hot, dry and buggy. (I’ve never seen so many bugs in one  place…flies, mosquitoes, horseflies, mosquitoes, butterflies, mosquitoes, moths, mosquitoes, etc.)  I did get almost two items crossed off my “I want to see in the wild” list:  a fawn with its spots (no pic as I was too busy watching to think to grab the camera…mama was pretty nervous about us) and bull moose (I got to see two of them…they were in velvet instead of sporting their full racks…so only a partial check).  Below is the better pictures of our trip…

Chimney Rock, Arapaho National Forest

the combined root “ball” of two pine trees

we saw meadows filled with columbines…this is just a very tiny sample

across the columbine meadow and through the trees…

Friday’s sunset

an example of what many areas look like…acres and acres of beetle kill waiting for one good spark…

Saturday’s sunset

Saturday at dusk

orange moon from smoke…lots of fires in Colorado

bull moose in velvet in a marsh

lilies in the marsh of the moose

moose laying in the grass, just to the right of center under the bushes
