Recently I’ve been too tired and cranky and let some of that into my blog world (for which I think I am suffering now.) To brighten the atmosphere a bit I thought I’d give short descriptions of serendipitous images from my hike at the end of August. All of them are probably photo worthy, but I made a firm decision not to take the camera along on a hike meant for reflection and study.
Exploring a lesser used trailhead in the driving rain the day before my hike, I turned a corner to get a nice view of a mother and baby deer (鹿親子). Standing amidst the wet cypress and cedar, they were really quite stunning. I felt they knew not to fear me, but once they let me admire them, instinct kicked in and they pranced up the hillside.
